It is hosted by the El Reno Convention and Visitors Bureau, Main Street, Preserve El Reno, the City of El Reno, GHOULI & Eerie Oklahoma.
OK ParaCon is not about one particular team!! Although we host the event it does not mean that you are going to have to sit and listen to "sales pitch" type of speakers. In fact, we are not even speaking!!! OK ParaCon is designed and coordinated to entertain EVERYONE. No matter what you believe, you will have a great time at OK ParaCon! The Oklahoma Paranormal Conference is organized so that people will love to learn about history, preservation and education. We work hard to offer a diverse line up for anyone that enjoys a good ghost story, watches Paranormal based TV shows, psychology, history, travel and adventure. It's not just about "gizmo's and gadgets" one teams adventures. It's for everyone!!!
Registration starts at 1:00pm at the historic and Haunted Elk's Lodge in El Reno, OK. The event starts at 2:00pm and will run into the night. We will have dinner breaks with a couple of options. 1) Take a trolley to one of El Reno's favorite diners! 2) Stick around and have catered dinner at the Elk's lodge with guests and speakers. 3) Venture out and find a place to your liking! ALL dinners and lunches will be very affordable!!! Just pick one! Return to the Elk's lodge to finish up the Conference and enjoy our headline speakers.
After the conference you can 1) stay and mingle with guests and speakers.. Cash bar will be on hand! or 2) take one of the fantastic tours that will be hosted and offered by the citizens of El Reno! All for less than a movie ticket! Take a historical walk or trolley ride and venture inside El Reno historical buildings that have literally been 'untouched" since the day they shut down. Step back in time as you enter Brothels, Hotels, boarding houses and much more. Learn about the history, the haunts and the speak easy days of prohibition!
We are working on securing a Lost Rt.66 adventure as we speak, so keep checking back for details. El Reno is a stopping point of Americas Mother Road. You can still get your kicks on RT.66 as you discover the forgotten landmarks and structures of yesterday. If you are able to drive to the Conference, we recommend that you drive the old RT.66 and make your OK ParaCon adventure even more memorable!
GHOSTLAHOMA Book Release- Already we have had countless requests for the Ghostlahoma Book! The official Release party will be held at OK ParaCon. Join us as we celebrate the launch of GHOSTLAHOMA!
