Does your state have its very own cryptid? Mothman, the Flatwoods Monster, and the Jersey Devil are just a few of the strange creatures who have reportedly walked the streets or roamed the forests of America at some point – and Iowa has its own in the Van Meter Visitor. Way back in 1903, the people of the sleepy town of Van Meter reported something large and mysterious over their town. Today, over a hundred years later, this strange creature still captivates the imagination of cryptozoology buffs across the Hawkeye State – and you can learn more at the Van Meter Visitor Festival, the biggest paranormal event in Iowa, held every September where it all began.
