ScareFest: Canada’s Haunted Attraction Convention with Home Haunter Chris Ainsworth

ScareFest: Canadian Haunteed Attraction ConventionWe get Chris Ainsworth from Scarefest: Canada’s Haunted Attraction Convention to spend an hour with us and we get the inside scoop on this one day convention for haunters. If you live in the U.S. this convention may be closer than you think. It is in Ontario which is just a short drive away from some of the northern states and it would make an awesome road trip. So if you missed out on some of the other conventions and live around the northern border then this would be a great way to get your haunt convention fix!

ScareFest is a one of a kind show that caters to owners and operators of professional Haunted Houses, actors, home haunters, artists, and Halloween enthusiasts in the Canadian Haunt Industry. -CHASCAREFEST.COM

Chris is also a Home Haunter who operates Thornhill Haunted House at his residence. How does Chris juggle running a Haunted House Convention, setting up his Home Haunt, and manage a full time job? Many of us Haunters have encountered this situation many times. We discover what keeps his haunt fire burning all year long.

If you plan on going to this convention, make sure to listen to this episode. Chris is giving all HaunTopic Radio U.S. listeners a special rate for just showing up!
