Midsummer Scream 2018

This past weekend - July 28, 2018 - was my first time attending the Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival in Long Beach, CA. It's only in its third year and it's already very successful.

Until next year! https://youtu.be/bz0mssy6cZE Mimosas with Michael on YouTube

The event takes place at the Hyatt Regency literally attached to the DFW Airport in Dallas, Texas. So that made it easy, especially if you fly American. You just walk through the tunnel in the parking garage and VOILA you are there! And since we were staying at the same hotel as the convention that best thing...
