     ROSWELL, N.M. -- Thousands of people from around the world are heading to southeastern New Mexico on Thursday for the first day of the Roswell UFO Festival.

The annual event pumps hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy, with hotel rooms booked solid for miles around the community.

Many people believe say a flying saucer crashed 61 years ago on a ranch near Roswell. Some accused the government of covering up the incident. Widespread interest in that event led to the creation of the UFO Festival.

Weekend events include a parade, alien costume contests and UFO-themed movie showings. The festival lasts through Sunday
