More on Monsterpalooza
Each year, both Monsterpalooza and Son of Monsterpalooza host enormous gatherings of Halloween and horror fans from all over the world, gathering them in either Pasadena (for the former) or Burbank (for the latter). Inside, you’ll find all manners of panels, presentations, vendors, autograph signings, photo-ops and so much more, to say nothing of the mind-blowing cosplay regularly on display. There are occasionally walkthrough haunted attractions present, but never quite at the same frequency as Midsummer Scream or, in years past, ScareLA. Monsterpalooza and Son of Monsterpalooza are fantastic opportunities for families with young children to indulge their love of horror and begin fostering an appreciation for the macabre at an early age.
