BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Fear Fete was in full swing at the Coast Convention Center on Saturday. From celebrities to zombie laser tag, there was something for everyone at the annual event.

"We partnered with Fear Fete because we are not your normal laser tag type of facility. We have zombies that are inside there right now," said Dave Borkowski, owner of Hero's Laser Tag.

Two actresses from AMC's hit show, 'The Walking Dead', were on hand to sign autographs.  

"At the time, I didn't know how big Walking Dead would actually get," said Addy Miller. "So looking back on it, it's so incredible to see it."

Miller and her fellow walker Kylie Szymanski say they love conventions such as Fear Fete because it gives them an opportunity to meet fans.

"I've been doing these conventions for about three years now, and every time I get to travel it's just so good to come here and meet all these different people," said Szymanski. "People that you wouldn't necessarily meet on a daily basis." 

There were a slew of iconic movie car replicas to check out, including vehicles from Ghostbusters and Back to Future. Trisha Morace and her fiance came from Brandon, Miss. as first timers.

"My friends have been coming for the previous years, and they talked about how fun it was and how awesome it was. So, I've actually been wanting to come for a while," said Morace. "I was really really excited to get to come down here and see what it was all about and spend a weekend with my friends."

Fear Fete continues through Sunday.
