Brings In The Largest Lineup To Date

For the past six years The Upper Peninsula Paranormal Research Society has been teaming up with Kewadin Casino, to bring to the fans, the largest Paranormal gathering of its kind, and this year is the biggest one, yet. Josh Gates from Travel Channels Expedition Unknown , and Nick Groff from Ghost Adventures, will headline this year’s event. Along with Ghost Hunters Amy Bruni, Adam Berry, and Dustin Pari, Haunted Collector’s John Zaffis, and from the movie Ghost Busters, actor Ernie Hudson. Twenty-One speakers and guest will make The 6th Annual Michigan Paranormal Convention at Kewadin Casinos on August 7 – 8, the largest list of names and speakers the event has ever brought in. The conference is hosted by the Upper Peninsula Paranormal Research Society (UPPRS).

“When we first sat down with Kewadin to put together this event, we knew it was something we wanted to grow into an annual event, but this has grown into something bigger than we could have ever imagined,” said Tim Ellis, president of the UPPRS. “The MI Para-Con (as it is referred to) has truly become a gathering of like-minded people who want to share and learn. Not just from the speakers and presenters, but from each other. It has become like a family and we look forward to seeing all the people we have come to know and made friendships with, and we always look forward to meeting those who are coming for the first time. It’ has become a weekend where people don’t have to worry about being judged or criticized, but rather opening up and learning and growing,” he said.

Ellis said having the names and speakers they have this year is outstanding! “Each year we sit down and want to set the bar just a bit higher. Well, this year, we really set it high! We have brought in more speakers to cover a larger array of subject matter. Plus, we are even bringing in Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore from the Ghost Busters movies, all part of the franchises 30th Anniversary, and Kewadin Casino’s 30th Anniversary, I mean, how cool is that!”
