It’s been 50 years since the collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, as well as the bizarre sightings and unexplained events leading up to it. Was Mothman trying to warn of the impending tragedy, or did the mysterious flying humanoid creature cause it?

We may never know, but Point Pleasant, home of the Mothman Museum, Mothman statue, and the annual Mothman Festival, have made peace with it. The 16th annual Mothman Festival happens this September 16th and 17th, with live music, vendors, hayrides and bus tours through the notorious TNT area, a Mothman 5K run, the Miss Mothman Pageant, and plenty of food shaped like everyone’s favorite harbinger of doom.
