The Belleville UFO Day is a great excuse for the community to put on their Halloween best and look like an alien.  This festival became a yearly event for the last 30 years after a UFO was spotted by police on January 15, 1987 at night. Read about it here.

Al covered the whole event since I had a prior commitment.  The day begins at 10 AM with a Color Run, an increasingly popular event at many festivals nowadays.

After the Color Run is  a great parade, a green alien is their mascot.  Al recorded the parade, enjoy!

The weather was warm and sunny so that really posted attendance. After the parade people went to Library Park where the festivities were held.
