‘Out of this World’ Festival Features UFO Experts

By The Coastal Current
Travis Walton, whose UFO encounter inspired the Paramount movie “Fire in the Sky,” will be among the featured speakers at Edinburg’s “Out of This World” Conference & Festival.
The day-long event on Friday, March 15 will run from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Edinburg Conference Center at Renaissance, 118 Paseo Del Prado Road.
Walton’s UFO encounter is the world’s best-documented alien abduction story. On Nov. 5, 1975, in plain sight of six other men, Walton was blasted by a beam of blue-green light that emanated from a large UFO that hovered directly overhead. He then disappeared for five days, returning with a story about being taken aboard a UFO.
Stanton Friedman, a nuclear physicist and internationally recognized advocate of the theory that earth has been visited by extraterrestrials.

A catered box lunch will also be available for an additional $10. Admission for children under 10 is free when accompanied by an adult.
On Saturday, March 16 the festival continues from 5-10 p.m. at the Edinburg City Hall Courtyard, where there will be an array of UFO related activities, artists and music, as well as creative costume contest.
