Saturday night, December 12, 2009, there were rumors flying around Portland, Maine, that a Yeti could be encountered at an event called “Picnic.” It turned out to be a decidedly retro crafts fair, and, as it happens, International Cryptozoology Museum docents Jeff and Jess Meuse quite independently of me investigated the situation. I saw them there, and we carefully dealt with the Yeti, as seen in the images below.

More background info on what brought on such a Yeti Encounter at this juried event, the first annual “Picnic” crafts fair, can be found here. While picking this up, Henry Stokes at his “I Love Yeti” site makes the good point that the Yeti is becoming a definite “Holiday Icon.”
