The annual Fouke Monster Festival is set for Saturday, August 1, at the Arkansas Convention Center - Holiday Inn. The event which typically is held in June was recently rescheduled for August due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When I was a young boy growing up in Texarkana, I remember hearing about some hairy creature on the news that was terrorizing Fouke, Ark. Over time, the legend became known as the Fouke Monster and the urban legend continues today.
The Fouke Monster, Big Foot or Sasquatch. Whatever you want to call him people have a fascination with him. In fact, Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot" would love to investigate our area! I've always hear about sighting around these parts.
