Some MAJOR things in October....

1. Stouffville's Magic Hill Farm's Haunted Adventure...... Runs all through October on weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).... Might be a good opportunity to do some promoting...

AND THE MAJOR ONE

2. Canada's Wonderland Halloween Haunt (Fear Fest)...... Runs all through October on weekends..... then the last week before Halloween they run all week long and on Halloween itself (Sunday, October 31st)..... Awesome event and I'm sure could do wonders for promoting!!

The Rio screening is up at PC, but I wasn't aware of the Ghostbusters raid.

Are you going to see Dan Aykroyd on Thursday, Last?


Regarding the Vancouver ComicCon, people might want to think twice before committing to them - they are not what is typically regarded as a ComicCon. It's a one day, four times a year show, in a small, one-room hall - it's entirely vendors with some guest artists.

V-Con is bigger and more conducive to more con-like stuff, but it's still small.

However, you might want to add Rue Morgue's Festival of Fear - no 2010 date yet, but it's usually August in Toronto.

I am not sure if this counts, but we've done a Ghostbusters themed haunt for a halloween decorating contest and any Ontario GB who might live close enough to feel it worth the drive is welcome to come check it out (in costume too if you like)! We'd love if anyone would also be willing to sign up to the site and give us 5 stars and post comments for us. There's a google map for us on our contest page.

Come on out and check it out!
