The Mothman Festival: Reviewed

Moth 16

My new Mysterious Universe article is a review of the Mothman Festival, which I attended and spoke at last weekend.

It starts like this:

“Last weekend I attended, and spoke at, the annual Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. After no less than a 19-hour drive (with Cryptomundo’s Craig Woolheater), I got into town around 4.00 p.m., Friday afternoon. This was not just my first time to speak at the festival – it was also my very first visit to Point Pleasant, period. And, I can definitely say, a fine time was had by one and all.

“I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I was not disappointed in the slightest. Of course, the one thing that – more than any other – dominates Point Pleasant is its huge, metal bridge. As those that know the Mothman story will be aware, the town’s original Silver Bridge collapsed into the cold waters of the Ohio River in December 1967, sending dozens of people to their deaths.”
