Roswell, Are You Ready to Rock?

Ah Roswell, N.M. Where would we be without it? Well, we wouldn’t have the New Mexico Military Institute who shaped the minds of people like Roger Staubauch and Sam Donaldson. We wouldn’t have people like Billy the Kid and events like the Lincoln County War in our history. And we certainly would have as much cheese and and skim milk since it’s the “Dairy Capital of the Southwest.”

But for the purposes of this blog, Roswell is home to the most famous alien encounter on the planet.

And on June 30th, you can commemorate this history moment in “Covered Up History” by attending the 2006 Roswell UFO Festival.

This, mind you, isn’t some backwoods county fair with a Tilt-a-Whirl and Meat-on-a-Stick by the pound. This is a serious gathering of UFO enthusiasts and experts with a little fun mixed in for flavor. You’ll hear lectures from experts such as Roswell authors Donald Schmitt and Thomas Carey, learn abour crop circles and abductions and be treated to a live concert by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. I asked if Roswell was ready to rock.
