There will be three Monster Bash Events this year. June, August and October. The June and October shows will be the large scale gatherings at the Double Tree in Mars, PA (North Pittsburgh Double Tree location). August will be a movie marathon at the grand Palace Theatre in Canton, Ohio with vendors.
Here are some of the basics on the forthcoming June show:
