Can't book rooms yet for Paracon 2018...everything is blacked out starting in Oct.  I also noticed it's not on our Thanksgiving weekend anymore. (Canadian).

It's still the second weekend of October. To bad about the holiday though. I believe if you call you can book rooms. I know others who have. I wouldn't think they are sold out yet.

I was able to reserve my room last month.

Will they still have Paracon 8 even after the Celebrities got stiffed and were never paid?

We haven't heard anything to say they won't. There are plenty of other agencies that handle the same people and hopefully some new faces. If it ever gets canceled we will make an announcement.

Hey does anyone know if those 2 canadian girls are coming this round cause they were funny as hell!

Not sure which Canadians you are referring to. Are they members of a group in Canada?

I remember them!!!!!! I don't think they are part of a group but I have seen them there before and yes they were the best I'd those 2 don't have a show .. They should !!! I believe they were friends of Grants

I remember them as well...I actually follow them on twitter .. I think its @2canadiangirls. Bring them even if they are not a ghost group... but seriously think they should be .. I think its funny people are writing about them cause they made the evening fun for all and yes I believe they are friends of Grants. Can you also bring back Porter and Chris they were great as wel

This is pretty funny...maybe get the casino to contact them and ask them to come if they are such a hit!! and I third this cause i rememeber talking to them as well...someone give these girls there own show. may be try and bring in Chris Fleming again he was missed last year

Maybe they can attempt to bring back the GAC even though I think Zak is on to other things in life right about now. Yes bring back the blonde girls

Can you please bring back Chris flemming he has a new show coming out and was missed last year

cant wait this is my first paracon and my moms too
