COCO, Fla. (CW44 News At 10) – "HorrorVille" a horror and paranormal convention trade-how will be bringing supernatural to Florida on January 22nd and 23rd.

The convention promises two days of fun, fiends and phantoms to invade Florida. The state already has a long history of paranormal activity including a haunted playground known as The Compound," and there is also "The Grid" or "Palm Bay Maze" where there are no street signs, and it is incredibly easy to get lost.
