The Fair opens June 8 is themed “Out Of This World,” and, as such, will include exhibits dedicated to space travel done by humans and alleged trips to Earth by alien visitors.
Fair spokeswoman Linda Zweig says the fair is America’s sixth largest, but hopes to get bigger by attracting visitors from beyond the southern California — like Alpha Centauri.
“It would be so cool if some aliens decide to come,” she told the Huffington Post. “I don’t know if their craft would fit in the parking lot, but if they show up, we’ll make room. There’s plenty of room in the infield.”

Local UFO researchers hope that this UFO portion of the fair raises interest in UFOlogy and its profile in the mainstream. By talking silly like the spokeswoman above and with no convincing evidence that UFOs are alien spaceships, they aren’t going to get much serious attention to the topic. Most people seem to think it’s just a bunch of fun, but, you know, people really do believe this stuff.
