The UFO festival in Roswell has had to cut back on the number of events due to a lack of interest.

The event is held every year in July to coincide with the infamous 1947 Roswell incident. Despite attracting visitors from all around the world, this year several of the attractions ( such as an alien-themed cooking contest ) have had to be scrapped due to a complete lack of interest.

"Several internal problems and the resignation of last year's festival committee chairperson, the director of UFO Museum along with other community members agreed to run this year's festival instead of the city."

I Agree it just makes non believers more skeptical, this Roswell event is for idiots not people who are generally interested in U.F.O's & The possability of life else were in this vast universe. So people of Rosewell please stop cashing in!. This event only attracst "Bogans". Its to Prove that Green Men Really Do Need Lovin Too !

Whilst it is indeed a shame, perhaps this is some type of indicator that the belief of Aliens crashing in Roswell is diminishing?

everyone got bored of extraterrestrials because years and years decade after decade and nothing. there just hasn't been enough available evidence to prove it. kind of like the casey anthony trial... everybody knows she did it, there just wasn't enough evidence to prove it. everbody knows aliens exist, there just hasn't been enough evidence to prove it.
