Roswell UFO Festival


ROSWELL, NM:

The city of Roswell invites UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike to join in the celebration of one of the most debated incidents in history this July 3-6 2008. The four-day event will feature guest speakers, authors, live entertainment, family-friendly activities, and possibly an alien abduction.

The city is expecting more than 50,000 visitors during the festival and guests are encouraged to make travel arrangements early. Links to accommodations, an event schedule, and more in depth information can be found at the new festival website www.ufofestivalroswell.com.

In early July, 1947, a mysterious object crashed on a ranch 30 miles north of Roswell. The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) 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 can visit alien attractions, attend lectures and book signings, and help uncover the truth about one of the most infamous cover-ups in history. Media passes are available now. Contact Alexis Kerschner at media@ufofestivalroswell.com to get your passes. For more information about the festival, visit www.ufofestivalroswell.com.
