The fifth annual Granbury Paranormal Expo will kick off the Halloween season on Oct. 1 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with a street festival in the middle of Granbury’s historic downtown square. 

This festival is free to the public and will feature ghost hunters, psychics, horror, sci-fi, cosplay, fantasy, and much more. 

“We are considering it to be a ‘Comic Con’ with ghost hunters,” said Brandy Herr, co-founder of the Granbury Paranormal Expo. “We wanted to bring everything together into one big event to ensure that we have something fun for everybody.”        

This year’s special celebrity guest will be Alex Vincent, best known as “Andy Barclay” from Child’s Play 1 & 2. He will be holding a Q&A session about his work on the horror franchise. Joining Alex Vincent as guest speakers will be Shelley Kaehr, Ph.D., aka “The Past Life Lady,” and the Austin Ghost Tour Gals. Tugg the Superhero Bull Terrier will be making a special appearance to promote his comic book series.

Several restaurants on the square will be showing their support for the Granbury Paranormal Expo by hosting a Zombie Pub Crawl, a separate, ticketed event to be held the evening of Oct. 1.
