Alien Encounters at County Fair

Roswell the extraterrestrial will make a visit from "Del Mars"

America’s Finest City will be home to some extraterrestrial activity this summer.

The San Diego County Fair will be “Out of This World” starting June 8, as the dedicated theme is space, aliens and science fiction.

The theme exhibit will feature some pretty spacey activities. Want to discover more about mysterious Area 51? The UFO display will have some interesting information about the secret alien hideout. A mock alien crash site should also provide some answers to those confusing crop circles.

If you’ve ever wanted to walk on the moon, fair goers can pose on a replica – complete with Earth in the background. Or try the telescope on site and check out the planets above.

But the best addition to this year’s fried-food event might be Roswell the tweeting alien.

The green man will be walking around fairgrounds throughout the 3-week event, looking for his unidentified flying object.

Phone home, Roswell, phone home.
