ROSWELL, N.M. The Little Green Men are landing in Roswell again this summer.
Roswell opens its annual UFO Festival on July 5, with the theme of Roswell 2001 Odyssey. The festival, which runs through July 8, includes alien costume contests for various ages, a trade show and vendors, a carnival, UFO lectures, presentations of the musical "Roswell Live," two concerts by a Dallas group called Little Green Men and screening of the movie, "Six Days in Roswell."
Downtown businesses are being asked to decorate their storefronts for the event. In addition, the Roswell Chamber of Commerce said this year's official UFO logo will begin appearing on billboards, official festival T-shirts, banners, brochures and Web pages.
