First Contact at Yelm’s Brand New UFO Festival

Humans (and probably a few lizard people in disguise) celebrated alien life in Thurston County.

Yelm was invaded by tin foil hats and inflatable green aliens for the city’s very first UFO Festival last weekend. JZ Knight of the famed Ramtha School of Enlightenment (whose campus is based in Yelm) delivered a speech on the powers that the 35,000-year-old warrior spirit Ramtha bestows upon his followers (including clairvoyance and telekinesis). Beyond the controversial spiritual leader, other alternative extraterrestrial experts at the festival’s extensive symposium also spoke (where reptilians were a topic of discussion). Lighter fare like “Ernie the Rocketman Magician” and Seattle’s very own Fabulous Downey Brothers graced the festival’s outdoor stage, where children played nearby on space-themed blow-ups and adults drank special “Alien Pale Ale.” All in all, it was pretty… out of this world
