Minerva Monster Day  When: Fri., Sept. 23 Ohio features several festivals devoted to the mythical creature Bigfoot, but there’s only one Minerva Monster Day. Last year's event was reportedly the biggest Minerva had seen with over 1200 people packing the tiny theater downtown that was the event’s epicenter. As a result of outgrowing the theater, this year's event, which takes place today and tomorrow, will take place at the local high school. The first night features a short film competition and the premiere of a movie made by an adventurer and wildlife photographer. The second night includes a slew of guest speakers as well as screenings of Sasquatch: Out of the Shadows and I’ve Seen Bigfoot. It concludes with the screening of a monster movie at Minerva Municipal Park. smalltownmonsters.com.
