Wisconsin’s Wildest Urban Legends Panel at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference
Learn about some of the strangest legends from the weird backwoods of Wisconsin this Sunday, October 16th at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference.
The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference has a lot of weird to offer this weekend, including a Q&A with Paranormal Lockdown star Katrina Weidman, a talk by Loren Coleman (International Cryptozoology Museum) on the Minnesota Iceman, a debate on the Roswell UFO crash with Donald R. Schmitt and Mark O’Connell, and much more.
So it’s only fitting that, for the first time ever, Cult of Weird will be presenting a panel on the many strange urban legends from the backwoods of weird Wisconsin! The panel will be moderated by conference director Tea Krulos with Cult contributor and resident goatman expert J. Nathan Couch, Valerie Kedrowski of the Stevens Point Paranormal Club, my partner in crime Christina Rickman, and myself.
Here’s what we’ll be talking about:
- Lover’s Lanes and Creepy Roads
Hogsback Road and goatman, Boy Scout Lane, Paradise Road
- I Dare You to Go There
Haunchyville, St Nazianz, Mary Nohl House, Maribel Caves Hotel Hell
The ghost of Al Capone, Bloody Bride Bridge, Phantom Hitchhiker of Hwy 12
- Reality vs Urban Legend
Ed Gein’s cauldron, Slenderman, werewolves, Milwaukee Lion
- Audience Q&A
Come to the conference (there are great things happening all weekend) and hear about some odd, horrific and/or quirky Wisconsin legends. Also, you can find us in the vendor hall all weekend next to the Grave Digger’s creepy Halloween candles.
The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference is happening this Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16. Catch the panel on Sunday at 1pm in the UWM Ballroom West.
