Following the parade is the Alien Pet Costume Contest at Buchanan Cellers. The Pet Costume contest is open to any and all pets who are willing to undergo the transformation of becoming an Alien creature! We invite you to bring your pet and join the fun! 

Guests can also enjoy a speaker's forum sponsored by McMenamins Hotel Oregon , with experts speaking on topics such as crop circles and U.S. Military involvement with UFO research.
