The One Paranormal Festival In West Virginia That Will Spook You Into Oblivion

Some paranormal festivals are fairly general, dealing with ghosts and other unusual phenomenon. Others are more specific, choosing to focus on a single aspect of the paranormal, like haunted buildings. But there is one festival in West Virginia that is very specific, tied into some truly spooky events that occurred for a period of 13 months in 1966 and 1967. It was a period in West Virginia where the city of Point Pleasant was terrified by a winged creature with red eyes, an unusual amount of UFO sightings and mysterious men dressed in black. Every year, the Mothman Festival takes the time to commemorate these spooky events.
