White Squirrel Festival

In response to Rose Gowen’s sighting of an albino squirrel (here is a picture of one), CAAF of Tingle Alley points us to this article about the White Squirrel Festival in Brevard, a town about a 40 minute drive from Asheville, North Carolina. According to the article, “Brevard is one of reportedly only four areas in America where white squirrels — a variant on the Eastern gray squirrel — can be found.” Don’t miss the descriptions of other animal-themed festivals, like the “Shrimp & Petroleum Festival” held in Morgan City, Louisiana, at the end of the piece.
