Legendary Creatures

Kentucky is no stranger to legends of cryptids.  From reports of sasquatch sightings to the Hopkinsville Goblins, there is no shortage of cryptid lore from the bluegrass state.

But before we get into Cryptid Con, it's important to know what exactly cryptids are.  Merriam-Webster defines cryptids as:

an animal (such as Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster) that has been claimed to exist but never proven to exist

Contrary to popular belief, cryptids don't have to be supernatural, mythical or even all that strange—though many popular creatures acquire these characteristics as their legends grow. Hayley Williams

There are a ton of guests who will be there, but I was personally pretty stoked when I saw that Dacre Stoker, the great grand nephew of THE legendary Bram Stoker (author of Dracula)  would be there.
