We went to the show and had a great time! HauntCon and Leonard did a great job. Got to meet Ed & Marsha with Distortions, and see all of their new creations in action, which was a highlight for us. There were lots of amazing props, by some very creative folks. And lots of educational classes. I was in hog heaven! We didn't get to attend the costume ball, but we did do the Friday Night ScreamWorld Haunted House and it was great. One of the best I have been to (and I am pretty picky) and would definitely recommend it. We met tons of great Haunt owners/operators/enthusiasts, etc...that were very friendly, helpful and fun to be with. It was great to be surrounded by people who feel passionately about all things Halloween, like we do. And like JCaviness mentioned, everyone was very willing to share ideas and knowledge.
