Cheaha State Park is hosting “Bigfoot BioBash,” a conservation festival this Saturday, November 18, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Highlights of the festival include a 5K trail race and 1-mile fun run, conservation exhibits, and storytelling by some of the best “tellers” in the Southeast.
The festival will have something for all ages and includes exhibitors, demonstrations, vendors, guided hikes, archery instruction and live birds of prey.
The 5k trail run will begin at 8:30 a.m. All skill levels are welcome, and dressing up as Bigfoot is highly encouraged. Race day registration begins at 7 a.m. at Bald Rock Lodge. A registration fee is required for the 5K and 1-mile fun run, but all other events are free with park admission. Food vendors will be on-site and Cheaha’s Vista Cliffside restaurant will be open as well.
Alabama’s Tenth Annual Tellabration on the Bigfoot Stage begins at 11 a.m. Alabama’s best storytellers will entertain with humorous, thought-provoking, and just plain fun stories. Each story will incorporate a hands-on craft activity for children, such as mask-making and clay art. This event is part of the International Tellabration, a worldwide event devoted to storytelling that always takes place the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Bigfoot BioBash is presented in cooperation with the Cleburne County Chamber of Commerce. Visit http://www.alapark.com/bigfoot-bio-bash for additional details about the event.
