An icon of old New Orleans at the very dead end of world famous Canal Street, The Haunted Mortuary is an architecturally stunning manor located less than 3 miles from the enchanting French Quarter. This magnificent mansion was originally built in 1872 and actually operated for over 80 years as real mortuary. This actively-haunted, 14,000 square foot, 3-story mansion, is surrounded by New Orleans Cities of the Dead.

For HAuNTcon 2015, The Mortuary will be home to the conference wrap party, which includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, a live DJ, and a tour of the building’s basement haunted attraction. Guests will also get to tour a sampling of Santa’s Secret Workshop, the venue’s Christmas event, held every holiday season.

WALKER STALKER CON
FEBRUARY 21 – 22, 2015
Chicago, Illinois
Navy Pier, 600 E Grand Ave.

Walker Stalker Con is the fruit of The Walker Stalkers Podcast with James & Eric. The podcast began with an amazing trip to Senoia, GA where James & Eric were able to view the set of The Walking Dead and meet the incredible actors from the show. As a result of this experience, a podcast began and then the idea of a convention focused around recreating that same experience with the cast and crew of the show, along with talented actors and artists from other zombie shows, movies and art.

Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention. It is a fan meet-up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers! Walker Stalker Con is three days of events, panels, and experiences that zombie fans won’t find anywhere else!

I will be at this event so look out for my coverage!
