I'll be there! With my buddy Sue. Will be my 4th one! They are so fun--and let me tell you, you see all sights. It's worth it just to people watch.

It's always strange to me how SO MANY people at the festivals are basically there to see Jonathan Frid. I guess I "get that", but I'm equally thrilled to see all the others too. For me, Dark Shadows was so much more than Barnabas Collins, so it always surprises me the lengths some people will to just to get "face-time" with Jonathan!

I have been to a number of Festivals from 1993 to present. I love some of the cast, but the festivals are about face time with the fans for me.

It's not likely I will be there but there is one perfect storm where I could end up getting on a bus and being there next week.
