Planning “Wild West” Bigfoot Jamboree

By Judy Bushy

Despite all the excitement along the Klamath River with dozens of lightening caused fires in July, the Bigfoot jamboree is still planned for August 30th. That friday night will be the coronation of the Bigfoot Queen and the teen dance. Saturday all the vendors plan to be on hand again for food, fun, and games. This brings a great opportunity to visit with Klamath neighbors that have returned to Happy Camp!!

The theme for the parade that traditionally starts from Davis Road, is “Wild West.” Plan your float and begin to get ready! September 2nd the floats, marchers, horseback riders and other entries will gather between the post office and Parry’s Market for the parade down Highway 96 to Second Avenue to the bridge over Indian Creek. It’s a great time and the kids look forward to seeing Bigfoot!

In 1987 the fires caused the Bigfoot jamboree to be canceled but that’s a very rare situation since it began in 1966. Come visit the best Bigfoot Jamboree ever!!
