UFO Festival in Roswell, New Mexico hosts Alien Pet Contest

Roswell, New Mexico was the location of the Annual Fourth of July UFO Festival.  We had to check it out—especially since one of the popular events was an Alien Pet Costume Contest.

Saturday's pet event attracted an enthusiastic crowd, despite temperatures in the high 90's (plenty of water was available for thirsty furry participants) as well as dog cookies to keep contestants spirits up.

The panel of judges had a difficult time deciding on the winners in the categories of creative, cute and scary.

Here are the winners:
And the winner was a cat!

2nd place went to this hand crocheted costume duo
Green food coloring creates the perfect alien shade of green—and its non-toxic!
