A cable network is in East Tennessee this weekend filming an episode for one of its reality series. The cast of Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot met with fans and signed autographs in Powell on Friday.
Hundreds of people came to the celebration, which also included a marching band, bounce house and face painting.
On the show, the cast members investigate Bigfoot sightings and determine if they're real or just a prank, and that's what brought them to Knoxville.
"There's this interesting game camera photograph that was taken outside of town and we've done a recreation of it. We've investigated it. We've done some night investigations and we're talking to witnesses," said Cliff Barackman.
At Friday's event, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett declared it "Finding Bigfoot Day."
The show has already started filming here in East Tennessee, and will continue throughout the weekend.
