The Roswell UFO Festival takes place July 2nd-5th this year, and if you have a chance to go, you should definitely attend. I went in 2013, and it was so much fun...and it led to me starting this blog. The festival is hosting 20 speakers this year, including UFO researcher Stanton Friedman, crop circle expert Patty Greer, author Kathleen Marden (niece of abductees Betty and Barney Hill), Aaron Sagers of the TV show Paranormal Paparazzi, and alien abductee Travis Walton. Here's a link to the speaker schedule:
There will be some other fun things going on as well:

You can see fireworks at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 4th.
