As you’ve (hopefully) heard by now, the main Milwaukee Paranormal Conference, which was scheduled for the Irish Community and Heritage Center, has been cancelled. We are currently hoping to reschedule the conference for JUNE. Meanwhile, we do have a couple other great events coming up:
THE KRAKEN’S BALL
We are carrying on with our awesome KRAKEN’S BALL on Saturday, October 20. This is a great way to show your support of the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference. Performers include Sunspot, Attalla, Hale O Malo, Alumni of the Miltown Kings, poet Ridire Quinn (of Teatro di Affetto) DJ Michael Weiss, plus a costume contest that is creepy sea themed– think killer mermaids, zombie pirates, swamp monsters, etc and get you costume together!
