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.

No, it's because Roswell sucks as a town, the festival has been the same every year, never changes and those who really wanted to attend have already done so.
