PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — Pensacon and Splash City Adventures are gearing up for this weekend’s Pensacon Halloween Fest, a two-day, family-friendly Halloween event.

According to Pensacon’s website, Halloween Fest offers two full days of spooky pop-culture fun in an outdoor, convention-style atmosphere. The weekend will feature vendors, live entertainment, celebrity guests, artists, trick-or-treating and other fun in a safe environment.

The two celebrity guests for this year’s event are actor Butch Patrick, best known as Eddie Munster on the classic TV series, “The Munsters.” Butch will be bringing along the famous Munsters Koach vehicle for photo opportunities.

The guests will be on hand to meet fans and, for a fee, sign autographs and pose for photos.

The live music entertainment will be Nik Flagstar and Pat Meusel, a GenX crooner, who will be banging out an hour’s worth of hits on his acoustic guitar.

Costumes to the event are encouraged and each day, there will be a costume contest, with adults competing on Saturday and kids on Sunday. There is a $5 fee to compete in the adults’ contest and you must be age 13 or older.

Kids in costumes will receive a free Halloween bag and are encouraged to trick-or-treat with the vendors set up across HalloweenFest.
