International Bigfoot Conference welcomes world-famous speakers
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- It's been 50 years since the first Bigfoot sighting in Willow Creek, California. This weekend, people from all over the world will gather to prove his legend is real.
The second International Bigfoot Conference runs Friday through Sunday at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick.
Bob Gimlin, the man known for spotting Sasquatch in 1967, will visit with fans, sign autographs and promote his new film. 15 world famous speakers will fill the days with their research and videos, including "Finding Bigfoot's" Cliff Barackman. Vendors will also have items for sale you'll have to see to believe.
"In order to make a decision for yourself, you need to see all of the evidence and see what's really out there," explained IBC co-founder Russell Acord. "People want proof; they want to see video footage and footprints. That's what these researchers dedicate themselves to, to find the evidence, to find the proof."
Tickets are $45 for a three-day pass and $25 for a single day.
