MARION, N.C. — A new event kicked off in McDowell County Saturday: The Inaugural Western North Carolina Bigfoot Festival in Marion.
WLOS reported that a crowd turned out to check out over 90 vendors offering food, bigfoot-themed merchandise and more.
For the kids, there were inflatables and activities. Adults could enjoy the booths and a classic car show. And for all ages? The Bigfoot calling contest.
The city of Marion has proclaimed the elusive creature its “official animal” after a reported sighting last year.
There have even been several Bigfoot-related incidents in North Carolina.
