There’s A Bigfoot Festival Happening In South Carolina And It’s A Family Affair

Move over Lizardman, there’s a Sasquatch contingency coming through. The first-ever South Carolina Bigfoot Festival is about to throw down in the small city of Westminster (population: about 2,300) and it’s expected to draw thousands to the family-oriented event being held on beautiful Main Street. And even though Bigfoot isn’t officially invited, you can bet there will be more than few who hope to spot the elusive woodsy creature.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

The South Carolina Bigfoot Festival takes place October 26, 2019 on Main Street in Westminster. Admission to the event is free. The parade begins at 9 a.m. For more information, or to become a vendor or register to be in the parade, see the official website. You can also follow the Facebook page for updates.

Interestingly, there have been more Bigfoot sightings in South Carolina than Lizardman sightings. Have you spotted either? We’d love to know!
