UFO Fanatics are Flocking to Oregon: 2014 McMenamins UFO Festival

By Jamie Hale

     With believers rallying their support, and the number of sightings growing exponentially every year, the age-old question persists: Are UFOs real?

You might get an answer at the McMenamins UFO Festival, now in its 15th year, taking over McMinnville May 15 to 18. Oregon's premier alien-themed event is growing along with the sightings, adding two extra days to the festival this year and providing more opportunity for dialogue with Ufologists.

"It's a big deal," said Renee Rank Ignacio, marketing director for McMenamins. While the festival has been light in the past, typically offering more opportunities for wacky alien costumes than for hardcore discussion, it's bringing in six speakers this year, including paranormal radio host George Noory and famed Ufologist Stanton Friedman. . . .
