The annual Pine Bush UFO fair, now in its ninth year, held Saturday on Main Street in Pine Push is an ode to the town’s lofty perch among the most well known area for reported UFO and Alien sightings.
The Town of Crawford played a central role in organizing and running Saturday’s fair, and in particular, Director of Community Service Domanie Ragni.
“This year’s fair featured over 150 vendors, several live bands, and a series of games and competitions,” Ragni said. “Of course we also had plenty of aliens to go around as well.”
Fans of the space-based science fiction series, Star Wars, were also happy, as Darth Vader and his 501st Legion of stormtroopers also made a visit to Pine Bush to attend.
“About half the people here are all about the aliens,” Ragni said. “The other half are just here to people watch, and enjoy the atmosphere and to have fun.”
“We do this to show off our town and to promote local businesses; who are able to get free vendor space.”
Also noteworthy, was the recent opening of the Town of Crawford’s new office of small business and tourism which sits at 85 Main Street and opened last month.
