This park was the first one I visited in Dublin, and it was a great way to start off my trip! According to the Phoenix Park website, this park is 1752 acres and was established in the 17th century. The park is massive, and there are a lot of different attractions spread throughout, including the Dublin Zoo. A fun fact about the Dublin Zoo is that the lion used in the logos for MGM movies had been born at the zoo. His name was Roary. Ha! See what I did there? Totally joking, his name was Cairbre.
Ghosts, and goblins, and ghouls, oh my! This was what I was thinking as I was walking through The Pasadena Convention Center to attend Scare LA over the weekend of August 6th. Scare LA was like a world I had never been in before, it was filled with all things Halloween. People were dressed as characters I knew, as well as some I had never seen. There were a lot of witches, and a lot of Elvira’s, and at least one Glinda in the crowd as well. Everywhere you looked was Halloween, whether it was merchandise being sold, or a class being held. If you’re a Halloween lover, pay attention, because I’m going to tell you everything about Scare LA you would want to know!
