Update on the impending PG film 50th anniversary disaster...

So as you may know this October 20th marks the 50th anniversary of the PG film. Many people have contacted us about possible festivals or conferences in Willow Creek or Humboldt at that time, as well as their intentions to visit the film site on that day. We opted to have a small celebration during Labor day weekend instead of in October simply because there will be no access to Bluff Creek. The roads that go into Bluff Creek close at the beginning of October every year due to the Port Oreford Cedar disease control measures. At this time there will be now way to legally access Bluff Creek and the PG film site during the anniversary. That is why we have opted to host our celebration during labor day weekend and the Bigfoot Days festival. The weather will still be warm and we will still have access to Bluff Creek.

It has come to our attention that there are several groups planning their own celebration in Willow Creek and are planning to visit the film site. This is fine but be advised that the roads into Bluff Creek will be closed for the winter and there will be no access to the area.

Apparently local hotels are already booked for the week of October 20th and many are still planning to come. At this point we think that we should still do some sort of conference during the actual 50th anniversary even if we can't access the site. It occurs in the week before Halloween and many places would likely be willing to host some Bigfoot related activities.

I will try and plan at least a few local activities for visiting Bigfoot enthusiasts during that time. We have a local pulp theater that can host large crowds and i will be contacting them to see if they would be willing to screen a few Bigfoot related films. Likewise I will also contact the local breweries to see if they can host some Bigfoot parties during that time.

I would like to have it be sort of a Bigfoot week celebration with small events held around the area culminating in a small conference or meetup. I will also attempt to gain permits to allow us access to the PG film site on October 20th itself.
