  1. OMGosh....LOL! I live 10 minutes or so from Marion and never knew this. Glen Alpine, 7 minutes west of Morganton. They have a livermush festival that is wonderful but I never knew about the Bigfoot thing. :)

    1. the bigfoot thing is new this year! I have a table at it for I Smell Sheep. Then I found out my brother is getting married that day in Asheville..but it is an evening wedding so I might still be able to make the festival!! If you go look for me :)
