Description

This is the first annual Paranormal Conference held in Wichita Falls, TX

Hosted by Texoma Researchers Investigating Paranormal Phenomena (T.R.I.P.P.)

Our goal with this Conference is to enlighten and inform others regarding topics relating to the Paranormal, and for those interested, to obtain a better understanding about what the paranormal is and what paranormal investigators do. We believe in what we do and want to be able to share with likeminded individuals.

You may have heard of or viewed the TV show Ghost Hunters? Our teams are not high profile like they are, but we do feel strongly that the subject of paranormal activity is interesting to many people according to the feedback we get from our online forms and forums. We have many ask us if we have get togethers which allows the public to attend, or if we do a conference. So we have decided to do just that.

Join us for some very good information from our speakers:
