The Elkton Blue Man

Coulter Mitchell created a short video (5:23) about Huron County’s Little Blue Man for the Elkton Historical Society that includes interviews and reenactments of some key scary moments. A good authority confirms that the events are more or less true, although the blue man costume is fancier than the original. (Hey, isn’t that the same guy that was at Autumn Fest?) Don Weiss, one of the three pranksters, is interviewed, as well as several “victims.”

Watch the video.
