UFO Festival events announced


The organizers of the 22nd annual UFO Festival in Roswell have announced events and activities for the June 29-July 2 weekend.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the festival, which commemorates the much-debated 1947 “Roswell Incident” that many believe involved a UFO crashing on a ranch near Roswell. More than 30,000 people are expected to attend.
Activities will include speeches by UFO, Roswell crash and extraterrestrial researchers; human and pet costume contests; an electric light parade; laser light shows at the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium; and performances by bands, theater groups and musical acts.
Related events offered by other groups include a sci-fi film festival and comics convention, the Roswell Incident speaker series hosted by the Daily Record and a conference at the Roswell Mall about UFOs and aliens.
