The City of Roswell is inviting UFO enthusiasts and skeptics to join in their UFO celebration on July 3rd-6th 2008. The truth is out there, somewhere. Possibly.
"This year, we want the festival to be all-inclusive. We invite everyone with an interest in UFOs, aliens and outer space to be a part of the festival as a presenter, a guest, or both," Mayor LaGrone told SFcrowsnest.com.
In early July, 1947, a mysterious object crashed on a ranch 30 miles north of Roswell. The Roswell Army Air Field issued a statement claiming to have recovered a crashed flying disk. An article ran on the front page of the Roswell Daily Record and the next day, RAAF changed its statement to say that the object was a weather balloon, not a flying disk as they previously reported. This revised statement sparked immediate controversy and has continued to be a topic of debate more than 60 years later.
During The Amazing Roswell UFO Festival, guests will be able to visit alien attractions, attend lectures, book signings and learn the truth about one of the most infamous cover-ups in history.
Yep, they're out there, somewhere.
