7:30pm: Robert Ripley - Tent at Greenville Tech

A barefoot and bucktoothed boy became a radio, film, and television celebrity who was voted “the most popular man in America.”

A reluctant writer who dropped out his senior year of high school became a best selling author and a world renowned journalist.

A nonstop doodler who was told he would never be an artist became a newspaper illustrator earning more than $500,000 a year – during the Great Depression!

Ripley travelled the world finding and reporting the oddest and most unusual facts about people, places, and events. Often controversial, sometimes shocking, and always entertaining, Robert Ripley created a media empire that survives and thrives more than 70 years after his death – believe it or not!
