Whatcha doing September 13th if you’re in the Erie Pennsylvania area? I’ll tell you what — you’re gonna dress up like a ghoul and shamble for charity that’s what!
Greg Ropp of the Eerie Horror Festival dropped us a line with the skinny on the frightful event:
“Join the Eerie Horror Film Festival for a very special charity walk and fun run at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 13th, at Presque Isle State Park, Erie, PA!
Dress up like a zombie, a werewolf or a creature of your own design! Give the tourists something to talk about on their way home!
Or just come as yourself (which may be even scarier yet).
Most importantly, help us raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundatione to help children struggling with life threatening illnesses.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to this great charity, which has partnered with our annual Festival this season. Help us make a child’s dream come true.
The Walk begins at Beach One at beautiful Presque Isle and is open to the public.
Tell your friends, family and co-workers to come out and support this great cause, even if they aren’t horror movie junkies like yourself.
For more information send us an e-mail here or call: 814-899-0407!”
But wait … there’s more Eerie shenanigans to tout so, I’ll turn this over to D.W. Bostaph!
“J.D. Fiegelson and his new remastered print of Dark Night of the Scarecrow will both be attending this years Eerie Horror Film festival in Erie, PA. Where he will be showing the film on the giant original silver screen inside the historic Warner Theatre. It has been over 30 years since the Warner Theatre has shown movies, and we at the Horror Fest are very excited that J.D.’s film will be one of the first to play on it in many many years.
The Fest judges are still wading through all the submissions for this year, and our last submissions will not be due till Spetember 1st. After that point we will have the programming done, and I will be able to give you a definite day and time that J.D. will be showing his film. J.D. will be a guest at the event all weekend. The Eerie Horror Film Festival will be October 9-12. Check out the Eerie Horror Festival website for more details for the fest, and keep checking back for the final schedule.”
