ROSWELL, N.M., June 24 /PRNewswire/ — Uncover the mystery and help discover the truth at The Amazing Roswell UFO Festival. The City of Roswell invites UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike to join in the celebration of one of the most controversial incidents in history this July 2-5, 2009. The four-day event will feature guest speakers and personalities, authors, live entertainment, family-friendly activities and possibly an alien abduction.

KBIM Radio and the City of Roswell are excited to welcome classic rock group Jefferson Starship and the Grateful Dead’s Tom Constanten to perform live in concert on Friday, July 3 at 9:00pm at the New Mexico Military Institute’s (NMMI) Pearson Auditorium. Jefferson Starship will be the “Grand Martians” of the Amazing Roswell Alien Parade on Friday, July 3 at 7:30pm. In addition to Jefferson Starship, Richard Street’s The Temptations will perform on Saturday, July 4th. Also in attendance will be special guest Hank Williams Jr.

The City is expecting thousands of visitors again during the festival this year. Guests can make their own hypotheses about what led government officials to change their story by visiting the crash site, alien attractions and attending lectures about one of the most infamous cover-ups in history. Guests are encouraged to make travel arrangements as early as possible. In-depth information and a schedule of events are available via the festival website, www.UFOFestivalRoswell.com.

In early July of 1947, a mysterious object crashed on a ranch north of Roswell. The Roswell Army Airfield (RAAF) issued a statement claiming to have recovered a crashed “flying disk.” An article regarding the incident ran on the front page of the Roswell Daily Record. The next day, RAAF changed its statement to say that the recovered object was a weather balloon, not a flying disk as had been previously reported. This revised statement sparked immediate controversy and has continued to be a topic of debate more than 60 years later.
