Who is on this podcast?
Chris and Jeff Davis of the Davis Graveyard in Milwaukie, Oregon are directors behind the West Coast Haunters Convention (WCHC) and teachers for eager Haunters that are willing to learn. They explain how the WCHC is a unique Haunt/Halloween show that does things a little differently with a more relaxed atmosphere, a kick-ass costume ball, and many other events that encourage meeting other Haunters.
Dan Doble from Haunt Collective asks questions that Phillip Hernandez (Haunted Attractions Network) and I didn’t cover.
