Queen Mary, Long Beach, CA
Bonus update today, and more of a bulletin. Tomorrow night, at Queen Mary's Dark Harbor, sliders from across Southern California will come together for a "unification" and group performance at Dark Harbor. This event has been years in the making, forged by an intent to move past old rivalries and unnecessary feuds and show that the sliding community--and by extension, the haunt community--are all one and the same... a big, bizarre, occasionally dysfunctional, but ultimately singular family.
Members of Dark Harbor's Slider Nation, Knott's Berry Farm's Decayed Brigade, along with other haunt talent from Universal and around SoCal will perform together in two shows tomorrow night. If you've been to Dark Harbor or attended one of the local Halloween conventions, you know that these guys put on a great show. So slightly overly dramatic subtitle aside (it refers to the old rivalry between Knott's and Queen Mary talent back in the day, when cross-association was frowned upon), It's sure to be a fun and exciting time. If you're free, consider heading over to check out the stunts and the action! You can use offer code "LBLOCAL" to get up to 25% off tickets.
