This year’s UFO Festival has a special significance as 2022 is the 75th anniversary of the Roswell Incident, which some believe was an encounter with aliens that crash-landed on a ranch northwest of Roswell. The Air Force simply called it a weather balloon. There are many differing opinions, but one thing is certain – the “UFO Capital of the World,” Roswell, N.M., will be the destination July 1-3 for UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike!
