Granbury Paranormal Expo
If you live in north Texas and you get a kick out of “woo-woo” things, check out the Granbury Paranormal Expo this Saturday, May 17, 2014. The little town of Granbury has leapt into the spirit of things (pun intended!) with businesses all over town offering discounts to those who attend. Check out their official website and Facebook page for details.
Granbury Paranormal Expo Exhibitors
It’s only $5 to attend the expo, and there’s quite an interesting list of exhibitors, including someone who sells “paranormal-themed nail polish.” Quite a niche, eh?
Unexpected Texas – Book & Postcards
I will be there selling my bookUnexpected Texas and conducting research for my next book, Paranormal Texas.
I’m also selling postcards of quirky places I mention in Unexpected Texas, including a postcard featuring the Jesus in Cowboy Boots, and the “Space Alien Grave in Aurora Cemetery. The photo I have of the alleged ET’s headstone is one of the last ones taken before it was stolen in 2012.
If you make it to the Granbury Paranormal Expo, please drop by and say hi!
Granbury Paranormal Expo Guest Speakers
I look forward to hearing the Granbury Paranormal Expo guest speakers, this weekend, too.
If you’re a fan of the X-Files TV show, you won’t want to miss Dean Haglund. He had a recurring role on that TV show as “Langly,” one of the quirky computer geeks obsessed with conspiracy theories. In addition to acting, Haglund does comedy improv, and paints alien-themed watercolors.
Other guests include Selena Roane, who’s bio reads:
“Selena Roane is the founder of FEAR Paranormal Society, host of the Internet show “Close to Death” on ParaEncounters Network, and a representative for the National Paranormal Society. She has had an interest in the paranormal since childhood and has even had some prophetic dreams. Her passion for the field intensified when she lost her mother in 2004; add to that the passing of her best friend, and her interest quickly went into overdrive. She has recently become aware of the fact that she has some empath abilities and is focusing on growing and developing that ability more. She has been included as an investigator on the DVD “Shadows of 66″ and has a few major projects in the works for 2014.”
And Janice Oberding will also speak at the Granbury Paranormal Expo. She has written a ton of books and been on a gazillion TV shows. Her bio reads, in part:
“Named one of three pioneer icons in the paranormal field by the 2004 Fall issue of Ghost Magazine, Janice Oberding is the owner and creator of the Biggest Little City Ghost Walk in Nevada and the author of over a dozen books… She consulted for the Syfy Channel, the History Channel, LivingTV and the Travel Channel…Janice will be giving a lecture at the Granbury Paranormal Expo on “The Ouija Board: Strange but True.”
Granbury Ghosts & Legends Tour & Haunted Granbury Book
The Granbury Paranormal Expo is organized by Brandy Herr and her mom, Colleen Henderson, the same folks who lead the weekly Granbury Ghosts & Legends Tour. I’ve been reading Brandy’s book Haunted Granbury, and it’s chock full of haunted history and ghostly goodness. I am so excited to take in the local nightlife-afterlife on one of their tours and to meet Brandy in person.
Who knows? Perhaps I’ll get a photo of a ghost on this weekend’s jaunt. Stay tuned!
