California’s Historic Town of Coarsegold Readies for Annual Tarantula Festival

California’s Historic Town of Coarsegold Readies for Annual Tarantula FestivalThe small town of Coarsegold, located less than half an hour south of Yosemite's southern entrance in California's Sierra foothills, is prepping for the 15th annual Coarsegold Tarantula Festival on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013.

In what serves as a prime example of a unique, small-town event, the annual festival celebrates the tarantulas that come out of their burrows each fall to find a mate, before hunkering back down for the winter.
