ECHO to display 1977 ‘Champ’ photo

To complement the photo, ECHO will screen, at 2 p.m. daily, the exclusive film “Champ” where Sandra Mansi talks about the day she saw Champ and how her life changed since that day.
The public presentation of the photo is all part of an annual two-week celebration at ECHO called ChampFEST. During these two weeks, guests learn about Champ, about the mystery of the lake creature and also the science of what it would take for Lake Champlain to sustain a creature like Champ.
