The North Idaho State Fair introduced us to the world of in-person events. The Spokane Interstate Fair took what we did there and cranked the dial all the way up! We couldn't even imagine how crazy and exciting it would be. After all, Idaho was already more crazy and exciting than we even knew it could be!

The sheer number of people coming through the gates in Spokane was staggering. The fantastic reception of our booth and products was amazing. We really enjoy meeting everyone, getting so much great feedback on our designs, and of course....all of the great Bigfoot stories!

A special thank you to Jessie and all of her staff for helping to make this happen for us. We were especially thrilled to see our name in the daily newsletter as a runner up for best outdoor booth! There were a ton of booths out there, so to be mentioned as a consideration on our first year was super awesome!

Once again, our Bigfoot Plinko game was big hit with everyone who stopped by!

One of our favorite things about being at these fairs was finding out how many Bigfoot fans there are. We were blown away with the number of people getting excited over our Bigfoot designs, as well as how many great stories we got to hear.

Check out this image that shows a couple of superstar Bigfoot fans.

Little Bigfoot and Arm Tattoo

The little guy was pretty excited to get to be Bigfoot for a minute. We were pretty excited to see that awesome tattoo!

Once again, Bigfoot didn't get out as much as he would have liked but he did make a couple of appearances.

 Spokane Fair Contest Winner

Just like the North Idaho Fair, we did another giveaway where the winner was able to choose anything they wanted from our website. This time, however, there were far more entries. We ended up with a staggering 5,178 total entries! Once again, five extra entries from the Plinko game helped our lucky winner. 

A super big congratulations to Katelin who is the proud new owner of a Find Yourself Hoodie!

Thank you again to every single person that came by to check out our booth and play our game! We really appreciate all of you, and can't wait to see you at the fair again next year. 

Awesome People Shoutouts

When you do events you never know what kind of neighbors you'll end up spending time next to. During the Spokane fair, we were fortunate to have some really great people stationed next to us for 10 days. 

 

509 Metalworks

Phil and Patricia

These guys are just all around awesome people. On top of that, they create incredible metal art pieces! We bought a few things from them and definitely recommend checking them out.

 

Tidy's Beautiful Bins

John Denenny

One of the nicest people I've ever met. This guy was a pleasure to see first thing every morning, and chat with throughout the day. It may not be something you realized is out there, but if you need clean garbage cans this guys gets it done.
