Ol’ Folks Volks Came to Bigfoot Jamboree!!

Vendors, Food & Toys at the Bigfoot Jamboree in the River Park

The 53rd Bigfoot Jamboree was a great gathering. As the Grand Marshalls, Bill and Ellen Johnson said “It’s when former residents come home to visit and reminisce” and we all “get together again to see old friends and have fun. “

It all begins with planning. Abigail Tower, Julia Peters, Yukon Sakota, Kirk Eadie, Linda Zink, Abigail Yeager and Justina Harrison served as the Committee. They have voted to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Happy Camp Community Center’s play area, a fenced outdoor play area and expanded dance studio.

The River Park opens for the Bigfoot Jamboree at 6 pm on Friday, when booths are ready to offer a variety of food, beauty, leather and other crafts, and support nonprofit organizations of the community. Patrons could “adopt” a duck for the Sundays Ducky Derby when they raced to the finish line for the 11th year. Previously the American Legion had Duck Derby and wore straw hats with ducks “floating” glued on.

The Scavenger hunt was free to enter and the “scavengers” went to Info Booth to get the mini map and learn about their quest! Kick off dinner of Indian Tacos by Amy Strain which you could enjoy at the picnic tables in the beautiful park setting.

Dancing toes, a group of youngsters who dance, gave a performance and had a recognition ceremony. Music went on by singer and songwriter Emily Kinsella. In the meantime the Little Bigfoot’s ages 5 to 8 were playing Laser Tag (and afterwards older players could join with parent permission.)

Vivian the DJ was featured music for Friday night Dance from 8 to 12.
