The Gettysburg Paranormal Enthusiast Gathering is explained under the info tab at the top of our Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-2011-Gettysburg-Pa-Paranormal-Enthusiast-Gathreing/345233474267?ref=mf ).However, to put it in a nutshell. It is something along the lines of a Flash Mob, except it's for for a whole weekend and the unusual act is just wear something to identify yourself or group as being involved in the Paranormal Community. Here is what a Flash Mob for those who don't know. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_mob
FYI FOR PEOPLE COMING TO THE GETTYSBURG GATHERING NEXT AUGUST 5, 6, &7 2011!
This is a Not a convention but a free gathering for anyone that wants to go to Gettysburg to enjoy the history and what the town has to offer. The difference is we are hoping you will be doing it with others from the paranormal community. This is for the individual to enjoy a nice mini vacation or weekend with like minded people.
HOWEVER, although there is no formal gathering to attend or schedules to keep, doesn’t mean that the individual or group can’t plan something on their own. I know there are a many authors out there that might like to have a book signing. They are more than welcome to set up their own book signings with a local business. So too, a lot of groups have DVD’s, t-shirts, etc and might like to promote their groups.
This is planned as a free event but I don’t want to discourage those who would like to promote their teams, books, DVD’s, etc.
I would suggest that if you fall into this category, look into teaming up with a local business in Gettysburg to promote your items. The National Park is off limits but a local business might help you. It is a matter of you scratch my back I scratch yours. Since it’s a paranormal weekend you would help bring customers into their store and visa versa. There are several Ghost tours that might be able to help you find places also.
So if you or anyone you know has a book, etc, pass this on.
Hope to see you in August.
