The COVID-19 pandemic has forced some of the biggest events in New Mexico to cancel. The UFO Festival was scheduled to take place this weekend before it was canceled. However, Roswell is still going forward with a different kind of festival.
Organizers say they want to give an experience online as close as they can to the actual festival. They will have actual speakers for the event giving their talks, and all events will be done inside the governor’s health order. One of the bigger events from the virtual festival will be the costume contest for people and pets, and anyone can enter for a chance to win.
