Once you've gone on as many adventures as possible in the summer, the next thing to look forward to is the fall. The season known for scary movies, hot chocolate, and adorable pictures at pumpkin patches. One of the most anticipated things of this time is all the haunted houses and scary events taking place. Monster Con in San Antonio is the first of many, and it's going to be just as fun as it is spooky. 

This incredible convention is taking place Saturday, September 28th to Sunday, September 29th from 10:49 AM to 6:49 PM. The specific and creepy timing of it is already giving me goosebumps! There's going to be tons of cool and creepy things happening at the convention, and it's a great excuse to get dressed up before Halloween comes around. Who says we have to wait until October?

A scream queen beauty pageant, guest artist, writers, an art walk and more will be taking place at this all-day convention. This is the seventh year it's coming to San Antonio at the Wonderland Mall of America and it's supposed to be the best yet! It's been such a hit every year and is unlike any Halloween festivity you've ever been to.
