The 19th Annual UFO Festival kicked off Thursday evening and runs through Saturday. It’s being held at McMenamins’ Hotel Oregon.

If you drive into McMinnville, a UFO Festival banner hangs over the main drag. On Thursday, things started with live music and a wine tasting named ‘Encounters of the third vine.’

The event draws thousands of people from all over the country. Organizers say it’s the second-largest event of its kind in the United States.

Oregon, in particular, has a history of UFO sightings. In fact the event began years ago, on the anniversary of a UFO sighting in McMinnville in 1950.
