Kecksburg Festival to Feature UFO Conference
The Mount Pleasant Township community of Kecksburg has become the focus of international interest as a result of a famous UFO incident that occurred near there in December of 1965. The incident involves a fiery object that reportedly fell in a wooded area near this rural community. A number of independent witnesses found a large metallic acorn shaped object with strange hieroglyphic-like symbols that was semi-buried in the ground. Later that evening, the military arrived in the area and apparently recovered the object and hauled it away, never to be seen by the public again. A number of Kecksburg firemen took part in the 1965 UFO event, also.
Commemorating this historical local event includes a large UFO, Bigfoot and other Paranormal display as well as speakers.
