"Scares That Care" kicked off Friday evening at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel with tons of vendors, celebrities and fans on site to celebrate all things horror.

The convention, which is returning for its second year in Williamsburg, raises money for families suffering from medical hardships by bringing together horror enthusiasts for some frightful fun.

The convention will continue throughout the weekend and include horror movie make-up wars, “scary-oke” (a spooky take on karaoke), live musical performances, a kids’ trick-or-treat parade and many celebrity guests.

The full schedule for the weekend can be found here.

Passes for the entire weekend are $40, and single day tickets are $25. Children under 10 get in free with the purchase of an adult pass. Tickets can be bought here.
