April 30, 2014 —
Once again, the streets of Pine Bush, NY were lined with folks scanning the skies for evidence of extraterrestrial life, as the 2014 Pine Bush UFO Fair unfolded on Saturday, April 26. Showcasing an “Out of This World Car Show” and scores of street vendors, food booths and performers, the event drew more than 5,000 people who showed up to participate in the schedule of events that included live music in the gazebo, performance artists, a “Martian Art Show and Reception” and guest speakers and lectures held throughout the day. Among those featured was author Linda Zimmerman discussing her newest book “Hudson Valley UFO’s,” which highlights local eyewitness accounts of sightings. As a continuation of Zimmerman’s earlier tome, “In the Night Sky,” two lectures were scheduled due to overwhelming demand.
Writer Thomm Quackenbush was also on hand reading from his newest novelization of the UFO phenomenon, and people lined up for a peek at the documentary “In the Night Sky, I Recall a UFO,” which focuses on the hundreds of UFO reports that have occurred in “one of the most active regions in the world for UFO sightings, the Hudson Valley.” The highlight of the festival each year is the “infamous’ alien and UFO themed parade, which grows in popularity each year, featuring floats, classic cars with ET’s behind the wheel, even dogs from other worlds, marching through the streets of downtown Pine Bush. All of the local businesses jump on board as well, with aliens in the storefront windows and “out-of-this-world” specials with themed deserts, drinks and main courses, all designed to appeal to the UFO hunter.
