Today Dan, Janice, the 14-year-old, and the 4-year-old went to the UFO Festival in Roswell New Mexico! Home of the infamous UFO crash in 1947, Roswell has turned that infamy into a yearly festival, a museum, and a main street lined with alien tourist traps. Listener, it is pretty amazing.
While everyone was ready for crowds of conspiracy theorists, what they found instead was a really fun festival--more county fair than flat earth convention--that happened to have men in black chasing aliens through the streets, a space-themed pet costume contest, alien photo ops, and more dusty rubber alien dioramas than anyone really could handle. Also, the 14-year-old had a run in with a murder ghost in a rock shop.
Listener, the truth is out there and also on this episode of The Hitch. Come to Roswell with us.
