Photos from our first Bigfoot Festival

It’s just our luck that we were planning a trip to the mountains the same day as a Bigfoot Festival was happening nearby. Of course. So the first weekend in September, Sweetums and I were in Marion, North Carolina, with thousands of Bigfoot enthusiasts for the inaugural festival.

Although we’d heard there was a Bigfoot Calling Contest and some other events, we didn’t see any activities. The town was completely overwhelmed. The crowd was so large, we had difficulty walking and it was so freakin’ hot we couldn’t stand being in the middle of a crowd. There were lines to buy T-shirts, lines to get water, lines to sit at one of the downtown eateries, lines at the ice cream and donut shop and lines for restrooms. We stayed long enough to take photos but, really, we couldn’t give much of a review of the event, except to say Marion officials will need to plan ahead next year to better handle to number of people who attended. There had to be more than 20,000 people there.

Any-hoo, here are the photos of our very first Bigfoot Festival and the first one for Marion, N.C.
