Pepie Festival this Weekend

The Pepie Festival is this Sunday, May 24, from 10 AM to 10 PM.

If you have not heard of Pepie, it is the name given to the monster(or more likely monsters) that is seen in Lake Pepin in Minnesota. 

This sounds like it will be a pretty cool family-friendly event this weekend. There will be many things to do, including:

  • Pepie Hunting Boat Cruises
  • A cruise to Maiden Rock(which is supposed to be haunted!)
  • A guided shoreline walk to Pepie sighting hotspots(with Chad Lewis)
  • A presentation on the history of the lake monster
There will probably be lots of other things to do as well!

You can check out more about the schedule on Cryptomundo.  

I mentioned Chad Lewis(who will be guiding the walking tours) above. Chad is one of the authors of the 2014 book Pepie: The Lake Monster of the Mississippi River. You can see my review of that book here, or buy it here. 

You could also possibly get rich at this event, too! Larry Nielson, a businessman at Lake Pepin, has a $50,000 reward out to any one who can get indisputable proof of Pepie's existence. 

If you are close to the area be sure to check out the Pepie Festival this weekend! Again, it is this Sunday, from 10 AM to 10 PM.
