The Michigan's Ghost Coast Paranormal Convention!

We had a great time this weekend with all of the events this weekend! A big thanks to all of our Speakers, Workshop host, Vendors, Sponsors and the many volunteers who made this such a great weekend!

We had so much fun meeting all of the visitors that came out and we will be posting some photos from the event soon. If you have photos that you'd like to share, we will gladly add them to the site.

Todd Clements, Author & Owner, Haunted Mackinaw

 A journey that started over 30 years ago, when Todd was a child visiting Mackinac Island, he saw something that stayed with him all his life. He could not explain what he saw, but could only label it as a ghost. This one event sparked the curiosity of a young man and with a simple tape recorder and a set of dowsing rods, Todd began seeking out the unknown.

Considered to be the go to person on all things strange on Mackinac Island, Todd has in-depth knowledge of the island’s history, legends, ghosts, and strange occurrences. Which has led to appearances on several documentaries, SyFy Channel’s Ghost Hunters, and other national and local media outlets.

Beverly Fish, Full Moon Rising Paranormal

Teaches a course on "Developing your Psychic Ability" and "Ghosts and Demons" at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor.  She has been a speaker at the Ann Arbor Psychic Expo and taught a 4-week course on the Paranormal at Silver Maples in Chelsea last year.  As a psychic medium and astrologer, she researches the connection between psychic events and astrological indicators.  She is currently working on research on the connection between Dark Moon Lilith and demonic experiences and will be presenting some of her research at the Great Lakes Astrology Conference in July.  Beverly states “The topic I am most interested in presenting is my experience as a demonologist.”  Her lecture compares ghosts to demons and how to avoid demonic infestations which can lead to oppression and eventually possession.


Upper Peninsula Bigfoot / Sasquatch Research Organization

These fantastic folks will be here doing a workshop to teach "Taking photos with perspective!" and a Q&A session too.
