Created for Halloween lovers, yard haunters, home haunters and pro creepsters, Haunt X is a trade show and expo featuring everything one might need to host your own haunted house or maze, but it’s also a place to simply score some horrific decor. Featuring workshops and DIY presentations on how to create props and pop-ups, the gathering grew out of a 2002 event called “DeathFest” and underwent a name change and move to Reno before the current organizers took over and brought it back to L.A. This installment features special effects people, a monster museum, panels, classes (see full list here) and even a costume party after the day events, all proving once again that Ministry was right — every day is Halloween. Pomona Fairplex, 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona; Sat., Feb. 22, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. $20-$55. hauntx.com.
