In this podcast episode of HaunTopic, we get Steve Colberg on the mic to chat with us about his upcoming convention Halloween & HauntFest in Texas. We cover all things going on at the show in 2017 and dig a little deeper to find out the real story behind Steve and why he puts this event together for other Haunted House/Halloween junkies.
