The Washington State History Museum in Tacoma will be celebrating the 70th Anniversary of two of history’s most notable UFO sightings with a 21+ evening of beer tastings and all things flying saucers on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 7 – 10 p.m.
The two cases being celebrated include the Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting and the Maury Island incident, which both took place in Washington in 1947. These two events gave rise to the terms “flying saucer” and “men in black” and kicked off a craze of sightings that year, which included the Roswell incident and many others.
The evening event includes beer tastings with Three Magnets Brewing Co., a presentation on and showing of the film The Maury Island Incident with the filmmakers, UFO-related crafting with the The Museum of Flight, open exhibit galleries, and more.
Here’s a trailer for the local, award-winning film ‘The Maury Island Incident’:
Admission is $15 in advance or $20 at the door, and includes a cool, commemorative pint glass and two drink tickets – buy tickets here:
