The biggest Bigfoot in North Bonneville will be unveiled at 7 p.m. today at the main entrance to the town off Highway 14.

The arrival of the Great Elder will cap — at least for now — a program of regular Sasquatch sightings coordinated by the city's Heritage Trails Committee. A whole family of the legendary Northwest woods inhabitants created by Ken Craig of Washougal has been placed on a quarter-mile paved loop around the community park.

The Great Elder, which is carved of wood, is by far the largest, standing 12 feet tall and weighing 2,000 pounds. His formal arrival kicks off the city's annual Gorge Days festivities this weekend that include a classic car show, barbecue dinner and sock-hop.
