Every now and again something cool happens in Oregon besides the good beer, wine, and food. That something was yesterday’s 10th Annual UFO Festival in McMinnville.

Yes, McMinnville happens to be the sight of the famous (infamous) Trent farm UFO photographs. Crazy.

Anyway, what was once something to be studied and/or debunked is now something to be enjoyed. The highlight of the day’s festivities was the alien parade down 3rd street (and the good beer!).

We figured it was a good way to spend an afternoon while at the same time doing some real-world research into exactly what a stormtrooper looks like before you use Force Push to toss him off a cliff.
