I will definitely be at the masquerade party and will be at the trade show Sunday (hopefully Saturday too just don't know if I can get off work 2 full days especially weekends......) I am super excited to go!!! I had a blast the last 2 years and can't wait! Of course I will share all pictures. :)

My husband and I are seriously considering going this year. It'll be our first ever convention - and it's just a 9 hour drive. We'll see what finances look like a little closer to the date, but it's a 95% chance of go. Super excited!

I hope to be there. Missed last years, gosh I forget why; must have been really important. My credit card loves the trade show, so many cool things.

Anything in the downtown area near the convention center won't be cheap, at least not cheap for my idea of cheap. There is a Red Roof Inn within walking distance, but it's not your typical RRI. Lots of reasonable priced hotels within a short drive. Search by zip code 43215 is the convention center, pick a radius that's within reason for your taste. Just be careful of the really low fares, they're probably in areas with free entertainment, such as watching drug dealers or hookers on the corner. ;) There's a few of those in most cities, just be careful. Post or PM me if you're unsure about an area. Happy to help.

first time we will be going to MHC, doing as much as we can jam in, pre show bus tour, masquerade vip, and Haunted Hoochie! very much looking forward to hoochie :)

Where are some good places to eat in Columbus?
We always stop at Ted's Montana Grill. They have pretty decent steaks and serve some awesome homemade pickles. :rolleyes: It's within walking distance of the convention center. http://www.tedsmontanagrill.com/

I am considering on going this year, just done TransWorld, i would like to see how they differ from one another. plus its way cheaper to get in. Coming from St. Louis though. This one is oriented more for home haunters, right?

Yes, it is a very friendly show IMO. I think it is more laid back for sure. :) . Now that we go as a vendor, I miss being able to wander around buying stuff.

FrightProps will most definitely be at MHC this year at booth 203! Expect our biggest MHC set-up yet along with an expanded Cash & Carry booth. We'll also be bringing down a huge amount of open-box and extra product that we no longer carry, marked down and ready to be taken home for haunting.

And of course, we'll be at the masquerade party doing what we do best - being as weird as possible. Hopefully we can make it out to Haunted Hoochie - everyone at FrightProps whose been there has nothing but stellar things to say about it.

As far as places to eat go, we went and got some insanely delicious hamburgers at a place called Thurman's - highly recommended.

Places to eat: a number of places with lots of variety are within walking distance of the convention center. Diners, dives, upscale restaurants and anything in between are available. You won't go hungry in Columbus. If you driving, the options increase even more. FrightProps mentioned Thurman's, it's great. Another unique restaurant:
Schmidt's, an authentic German restaurant http://www.schmidthaus.com/
Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill: http://www.buckeyegrill.com/ If you're a fan of college football, this is a can't miss stop.
Mitchell's Steakhouse (a long walk or drive): http://www.mitchellssteakhouse.com/ If you want an excellent steak, this is the place. I can't pass on their salmon, it's melts in your mouth.
Cap City Diner: http://www.capcityfinediner.com/ Consistently a top rated local favorite.

Happy Dining!!!!
