Panel Discussion: Wisconsin’s Wildest Urban Legends

goatman-haunts-residents-ftr

Presented by Cult of Weird. Sunday, UWM Ballroom West

Moderator: Tea Krulos (author, Monster Hunters) Panel: J. Nathan Couch (author, Goatman: Flesh or Folklore?) Charlie Hintz and Christina Rickman (Cult of Weird), Valerie Kedrowski (Stevens Point Paranormal Club).

Have you heard the story of Haunchyville, a village of angry dwarves (and their albino bodyguard) that supposedly exists in Muskego? Or maybe you’ve heard the gruesome tale of Boy Scout Lane, an isolated road outside of Stevens Point where a troop of Boy Scouts met their demise in the 50s…maybe it was the 60s. They were killed by their demented Scoutmaster…or their bus driver…or they died in a fire when their bus crashed.

And who could forget our breakout star of Milwaukee Paranormal Conference 2015, the Goatman! This half human, half goat creature allegedly stalks couples getting hot n’ heavy with each other on Hogsback Road outside of West Bend.

Our panel of urban legend enthusiasts will discuss these and more– we got to mention the Phantom Man of Highway 12 in Baraboo, and probably should discuss whatever happened with that Milwaukee Lion story.  We’ll also have a discussion session with the audience so you can share your own favorites.

Why discuss urban legends? They’re an important part of our modern local folklore…and of course, they’re a hell of a lot of fun!
