True Blood, The Walking Dead Stars Mingle at Parafest 2013 Convention!

The vampires vs. zombies debate will rise from the dead once more — with feeling! — this September at Parafest 2013.

Stars from True Blood, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Ghost Hunters and even the Ghostbusters movies will meet fans at the event, which runs from noon-10 p.m. Sept. 6 and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Sept. 7 and 8 at Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

True Blood stars Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam), Sam Trammell (Sam), Denis O’Hare (Russell Edgington) and William Sanderson (sheriff Bud Dearborne) are all scheduled to attend. Headlining the weekend is The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker (Merle), and if you know anything about Rooker you know he’s a character. Expect his crazy pants to be on!

Walking Dead stars joining the event are IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Vincent Ward (Oscar), Lew Temple (Axel) and James McCune (Jimmy), and zombie characters Michael Koske, Alex Wayne and Tony Gowell. Spoiler alert! Don’t expect the actors to have too many details on Season 4 (which premieres in October), since all of their characters are now deceased.

Tickets are available at; it’s $25 a day for adults and $10 for ages 12 and younger accompanied by an adult. For another $25, you get access to celebrity Q&A sessions and panels. There are also $100, $150 a day and $300 full-weekend VIP packages.

What do you think? Worth making a pilgrimage to Bethlehem?
