No, it's not Halloween - Spooky Empire is turning Spring Break into "Scream Break" by bringing its particular brand of pop-culture/horror genre/dark fantasy fan convention to Orlando this weekend.

Pete Mongelli is the owner of the 17-year-old biannual convention, which does, in fact, happen every Halloween as well.

He tells 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston what to expect at Spooky Empire.
