UFO Parade Application

from 20.00

Mark your calendars for the 18th annual UFO Festival, May 18-21, 2017 in downtown McMinnville. Thanks to the efforts of McMenamins, the UFO Festival has received national recognition as it celebrates the 1950 UFO sighting at the Trent Farm, just outside of town. And, with the festival comes the annual UFO Alien Costume Parade. We hope you’re busy planning and working on your entry! The UFO Parade includes an eclectic mix of marching, grooving, hovering, dancing bands, spaceships, troupes of aliens, out-of-this-world decorated cars and much more. The costume parade is one of many events taking place during UFO Festival. Visit www.downtownmcminnville.com or www.ufofest.com for more information.
