I haven’t figured out yet if it’s cool or crazy…
On October 17th, less than ten miles up the road, there is going to be a Bigfoot Expo. But that’s not it. It’s going to be The First Annual Fayette County, PA UFO, Bigfoot & Paranormal Expo. Am I living in the right place at the right time or what?
I wouldn’t have known a thing about it if someone hadn’t seen an announcement about it on Facebook and told me about it. Hmm…I guess Facebook can have its positive moments after all.
I have to confess that I like to watch those shows about all of these things… Bigfoot sightings, UFO conspiracies, and the paranormal make for great television, even if the people on those shows never catch sight of anything. At least they have interesting local people telling their stories. And, if you’re a fan of those kind of shows, you’ve probably seen this area highlighted more than once. I’ve told you about the Bigfoot show that called for a town meeting in the State Theatre last year. But there was also an event that has been discussed on those shows – an event that occurred near Nemacolin here in Fayette County – when people reported seeing both Bigfoot and UFO’s in the same area. So they wondered if Bigfoot is from space or if aliens come here to catch them. I know…you’re checking your guide now to see when that’s going to be shown in your area, aren’t you…?
So I think it’s about time that Fayette County has an Expo like this. We’re that kind of area where this needs to happen. It just fits in so well. And of course I need to be there and check it all out, even if it’s just to people watch and listen in to what everyone has to say. I’m thinking it could inspire me for another novel somewhere down the road if nothing else…
Maybe if I get motivated, I could even rent a table there and get some “Books, Beer and Bigfoot” t-shirts printed up. You interested? I think that could be incredibly fun and oh-so cool to see people from the area (and beyond) walking around with those on. Oh to be waiting in line at Walmart-Mart or Target and see the person in front of you wearing one, right?
Let me know if you’re interested in being a part of the fun that day and I can give you some more information about it. Heck, if we get a group together to pass out t-shirts, listen to some speakers and then go have a couple of drinks afterwards and talk all about our experiences, I think that could make for an incredibly fun day… One that could only be repeated the next fall at The Second Annual…etc…etc… Because you know the first one is going to be a blast!
