The hills and vales of the bucolic Whitehall countryside will be resonating with the deep, sonorous calls of Bigfoot next weekend.

The third annual Sasquatch Calling Festival is set to kick off at 10 a.m. in the Skenesborough Park in Whitehall. There is no cost to attend.

“I’m shocked at how many people are gearing up for it in Fort Edward and Hudson Falls,” said event organizer, David Molenaar. “Holy smokes.”

The day promises to be chock full of all things Bigfoot – or Gigantopethecus, if you want to be scientific – with a full slate of researchers, musicians, vendors, films and eyewitnesses.

Thus far 30 vendors have committed to attending the festival including videographers, authors, researchers, Bigfoot crafters as well as food vendors with Joe’s Pizza hawking piping-hot pies and frozen ice cream treats.

A showing of the film, Beast of Whitehall, gets the day started at 10 a.m. Immediately following the film, Sasquatch eyewitness Brian Gosselin and wife Sue Gosselin will deliver a presentation at 11 a.m. At noon, the film Harry and the Hendersons will play.
