This year Days Of The Dead adds another city to it’s roster when they invade the town of Louisville, Ky Labor Day Weekend. If you have never been to a DOTD Convention you don’t know what you are missing. Great guests, vendors and after hour events all weekend long.
I am always impressed by the guests that they bring to the table and this show is no exception! Check out who is on the bill for this one….
Cassandra Peterson AKA as Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark. One of the nicest ladies you will ever meet. I have heard rumors that she will be hanging up the Elvira costume soon, so if you have never got a picture with her in costume you better jump on this one. She usually appears as Elvira on Saturdays. Friday and Sunday as Cassandra Peterson.
It always seems like Days Of The Dead caters to my likes. Return Of The Living Dead has always been at the top of my list as one of my all time favorite flicks. The Louisville show is featuring a ROTLD reunion that is sure to please any fan of the film.
