PLATTSBURGH - Hundreds attended the Northern New York Paranormal Expo hosted by the Northern New York Paranormal Research Society and the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department Oct. 24.
The event, held at the City Recreation Center, included vendors and exhibitors from across the region and beyond.
NNYPRS founder and president Merrill McKee said he was pleased with the turnout for the event, which also benefited local food pantries by encouraging donations of canned goods with admission.
"We've gotten three or four boxes full," said McKee. "I'm very thankful for what we got. People really came out and supported us here in Plattsburgh today."
The event also raised money for the NNYPRS, which has been in existence since 2001.
"We wanted to be able to help our coffers and give back to the community as well," explained McKee.
The attendance was so impressive, McKee said his group will be back.
"We're hoping to make it a two-day event," he added. "Definitely, we're doing it again next year."
