ROSWELL, N.M. — An annual New Mexico event dedicated to UFOs isn’t changing plans despite concern around the new coronavirus.
KOB-TV reports the UFO Festival in Roswell remains scheduled for July 3-5 and organizers say they have no plans to move it.
Mainstreet Roswell board member Molly Boyles says organizers still have time and will only cancel or postpone if government agencies recommend it.
Boyles, the owner of Once Again Consignment and Resale, also says she doesn’t plan to close the doors to her shop anytime soon.
Roswell Mayor Dennis Kintigh says the city so far has no positive cases of COVID-19.
The site of a supposed UFO crash in 1947, Roswell has an annual extraterrestrial festival that draws thousands.
