Kecksburg UFO Festival

July 27 - July 29

On Dec. 9, 1965, Kecksburg residents reported that a fireball streaked through the sky and then an object showed up in the nearby woods. Conspiracy theories are still being thrown around today as to what really happened. The local newspapers reported on it, a documentary called “Invasion on Chestnut Ridge” was released in 2017 and eyewitnesses still swear by what they saw that night. Was it aliens, a meteor or something else entirely? We may never know, until then it’s a great reason to have a festival!

Today, the Laurel Highlands celebrates its paranormal past at the Kecksburg UFO Festival featuring guest speakers, plenty of costumes, fireworks, children’s games, arts and craft vendors with plenty of UFO-themed souvenirs, live music and more.

History and recreation come together to create the ideal destination for outdoor fun in southeastern Pennsylvania! Valley Forge National Historical Park has launched an initiative to raise awareness about the Park’s trails and outdoor recreation resources. The ’78 Mile Challenge encourages visitors to walk, hike, run, pedal, or paddle through the scenic 3,500-acre park, logging their miles along the way. The name and the 78 miles are a reminder of the Continental Army’s encampment at the site in 1777-78. www.valleyforge.org
