That’s right, November 16th, 2012 has been officially proclaimed as “Bigfoot Day” in Knox County, TN.  Knox County mayor, Tim Burchett, is such a bigfoot buff that has set aside a whole day to celebrate their/our love for bigfoot, and you’re invited!

On Bigfoot Day there will be numerous activities to participate in, including face painting (Bobo says he’ll get an Ace Frehley paint job) and a bounce house (which I’m particularly looking forward to).  We expect a pretty big turn out, so get down here early.  

Here’s the official press release:
