PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — Halloween is just about seven weeks away, and the folks at Pensacon announced today they are going to hold a festival to celebrate.

A post on Pensacon’s Facebook page says Pensacon Halloweenfest will be an outdoor, convention-style atmosphere with a Halloween theme.

The day will feature vendors, live entertainment, celebrity guests, artists, panels, food trucks, trick-or-treating and other fun in a safe and family friendly environment, according to the post.
