Portland's endearingly eccentric McMenamins headquarters in McMinnville, OR hosted a UFO festival last weekend. I think the circumstances and these pics speak for themselves. So without any further ado…check out the highlights of the day:
Our first alien sighting…a VW Bus. Haven’t seen one of these in quite awhile and as soon as I saw it, I knew we were amongst friends.
I love Holden's look of “What…? We can’t just take over these comfy, perfectly placed parade-watching chairs???”
Holden’s rendition of a “happy alien,” complete with mezermerizing eyes and encapsulated space pod.
Where else on earth can you openly (and safely) high-five a storm trooper?
I’m short, and Holden already staked claim to Brian’s shoulders, so I couldn’t see much of the parade. I did catch sight of a few clever floats but the costumes were really my favorite.
This alien needs to know that there's better beer on earth than Coors Light.
I think the best costume award (or would that be CONSUME award) goes to my good friend, Tom. Appropriately double fisted, he embodied the true spirit of the day. Rock on Aliens!
