The best thing about MIPARACON is that the convention participants can actually MEET the paranormal stars. At MIPARACON, the stars aren’t always on stage or locked away in their rooms. (Photo of Grant Wilson and fan from the 2016 MIPARACON he will be returning for 2018)

MIPARACON brings an array of television personalities to the convention and experts in their fields. Talk with Jeff Mudgett, the descendant of notorious serial killer H.H. Holmes and host of the History Channe’s American Ripper. You can also have a fantastic conversation with well-known psychics like Chip Coffey or Exie Smith

There’s also an opportunity to shop the vendor room with your convention wristband. From psychic readings to books about the paranormal you will find a little bit of everything. The stars even have vendor tables set up so you know where to find them when they’re not on stage. Pictured below are Andrea Perron and her father Roger Perron (Photo from 2017).
