EDINBURG, Texas – The 2019 Out of this World UFO Festival and Conference is a three day event running from April 4 – 6. The festival is free and open to the public and includes guest speakers, live entertainment, food and lots of family friendly activities. Organizers say the event is important because it highlights and connects the Rio Grande Valley’s past history with UFO’s.
Magdiel Castle, Cultural Arts Manager, “In 1966 we had a UFO incident in north Edinburg. Today we have a tour of the ranch and there is still debris and chared metal from the incident where the suspected UFO struck the truck and mobile home.”
This evening’s festivities run from 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. at Edinburg City Hall. Saturday’s conference will be held at the Edinburg Conference Center at Renaissance beginning at 9:00 a.m.
