Plan for sasquatch sightings at blueberry festival


Texas Blueberry Festival presenting sponsor Tipton Ford owner Neal Slaten and festival Chair Grace Handler are planning for a day packed with blueberry fun in downtown Nacogdoches on Saturday, June 11, 2022.


The famous and elusive Sasquatch is the named mascot of the Sasquatch Off-Road Adventure Club, and a representation of the giant, human-like animal will be a featured attraction of the 32nd  Annual Texas Blueberry Festival presented by Tipton Ford.


“You’ll have the chance to get a really good look at the seven-foot sculpture of our Sasquatch buddy on festival day, Saturday, June 11,” said Neal Slaten, owner, Tipton Ford. “He’ll be hanging out in Festival Park in downtown Nacogdoches with our off-road adventure club guys and gals. You can discover more about the club and what it offers while you’re there.”   


According to Slaten, “training in off-road driving safety and environmental awareness are all at play in joining the new club membership for maximum road trip enjoyment.”


The new Bronco Sport as well as vintage models of the Bronco will be on display in Tipton’s area of Festival Park, located on the bank of Banita Creek.


In addition to the Sasquatch Off-Road Adventure Club area, Festival Park is the location for the KSWP/KAVX Kid’s Obstacle Course, a U.S. Army interactive activity trailer, a kid’s bounce park, the Vehicle Funcase Car Show sponsored by RV Outfitters of Texas, the Blue Washer Board Contest sponsored by Badders Law Firm, a petting zoo and more vendors. Festival Park is the shady, grassy area, just “down the hill” from the downtown brick streets.


An additional photo-op with blueberries and the F1 Blueberry Festival Ford Truck is planned for the Tipton Ford area on E. Main St. in front of the Charles Bright Visitor Center. “We want to give everyone who comes to the festival with friends and family a good memorable experience,” Slaten said. “This is our opportunity to enjoy getting to know folks and celebrate one of the largest traditional outdoor events in Nacogdoches.”
