Over the last eight years, Monsterpalooza has become internationally recognized as one of the better horror events in the country. And since one Monsterpalooza a year wasn’t enough to fill the demand, Son of Monsterpalooza was born in 2012 to bring you double the monstrous fun! This weekend you can join the party at the Marriott Burbank Hotel and Convention Center.
