Houston Halloween Fest and Horror Con

Attention, serious horror fans. You should already be in costume-planning mode, since 2014 is the inaugural year for Houston’s Horror Con and Houston Halloween Fest. The convention-slash-family festival, backed by Houston Zombie Walk and Comicpalooza, is bound to be a scary success, featuring headlining “artist” Vanilla Ice. The festival will also feature all sorts of family-friendly Halloween awesomeness — a full carnival, complete with a Ferris wheel and obstacle course, for starters — and across the street, you’ll find plenty of adult Halloween fun at Horror Con. The convention will feature graphic artists, horror celebrities and plenty more — and you can even drag little Buster along for the ride.
