Street closures for UFO Festival announced


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The UFO Festival will land in Roswell beginning Friday, filling downtown with pedestrians, vendors and events that require some street closures.

Beginning early Friday, July 5, around 5 a.m., downtown street closures will take effect and continue through the festival, which is expected to conclude late Sunday afternoon, July 7.

Main Street will be closed from Second Street to Sixth Street. Motorists are asked to pay attention to detour signs that will direct them around the downtown area. Half-block portions of Fourth and Fifth streets — extending to the west and east from Main Street — will be closed as well.

On Saturday night, July 6, the UFO Festival electric-light parade will head down Main Street at 9 p.m. It will begin at Ninth Street and travel south for several blocks. To accommodate the parade, the closure of Main Street will be extended to 11th Street shortly before the parade begins. Main Street will be reopened north of Sixth Street following the conclusion of the parade, which is expected to last no more than an hour.

Pecos Trails Transit will be impacted by the street closures throughout the UFO Festival. For information regarding temporary changes to bus routes and schedules, call 624-6766.
