Southeast Halloween Enthusiast Convention – SEHEC July 11th & 12th

The Southeast Halloween Enthusiast Convention is for both Halloween and Paranormal fanatics.



Halloween and Paranormal Convention & Fundraiser for Charity

The Southeast Halloween Enthusiast Convention (SEHEC — which we pronounce as “SEE-heck”) is for both Halloween and Paranormal fanatics. We are a fun, two-day educational and charitable event benefiting a publicly-funded 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue shelter in Central Florida.

ALL of our proceeds help keep the facility hosting its rescued dogs and horses, and protected Florida gopher tortoises. Your attendance helps us work toward our goal.
