Mothman Festival 2018, Pilgrimage to Point Pleasent, WV

It has been a bucket list item for me for years to attend the Mothman Festival, was a great time and I met a few interesting people like Seth Breedlove, the man behind documentaries like Invasion On Chestnut Ridge.

(Please excuse the quality on some of the photos, there was a rush in the Mothman Museum due to the flow of the crowd, took the best shots I could.)
