It’s called the UFO Capitol of the Northeast, and there will be festivities from morning till night Saturday to celebrate the hamlet’s distinction.
Pine Bush is reportedly a hot spot for UFOs; hence The Pine Bush UFO Fair. Pine Bush is a hamlet, in the Town of Crawford in Orange County, and Shawangunk in Ulster County. The day’s events begin with a 5k race, and then Main Street is closed from 9 till 3:30, during which time local authors will talk about UFO sightings. One author is Linda Zimmermann, whose book "In the Night Sky: Hudson Valley UFO Sightings from the 1930s to the Present" prominently features Pine Bush. Then there’s a parade, a documentary film based on Zimmermann’s book, and a radio theater performance of “War of the Worlds” followed by, perhaps, a UFO sighting.
