Invaders selling gear at World Famous UFO Festival
The Roswell Invaders will return to the UFO Festival for third year in a row.
Both the UFO Museum and the City of Roswell will be selling Invaders Gear at the Festival.
Vickie Stringer from the City of Roswell will be running the Invaders Booth.
The Roswell Invaders Hats are now 1 of the 5 most popular items sold at the event.
The City of Roswell invites UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike to join in the celebration of one of the most debated incidents in history. The three-day event will feature guest speakers, authors, live entertainment, a costume contest, a pet costume contest, parade, family-friendly activities and more.
If you are a visitor to Roswell, there are plenty of lodging options available. There are many hotels within a two mile radius of the event. Roswell also has public bus transportation with Pecos Trails Transit. The majority of the events will be held downtown, with very few exceptions. Most events are within walking distance.
The CosmiCon will also be taking place this weekend at the Roswell Mall. We will have a special shuttle bus that will transport visitors from downtown Roswell to the Roswell Mall and back. More information on that will be posted soon.
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. This is best known as the UFO Incident.
