The town’s annual UFO Days festival attracts interesting people from all over the country and as far away as Canada. The unique event continues to grow each year. In this case however it is an Unforgettable Family Outing (UFO) for both young and old alike. The festival capitalizes on the town’s famous history associated with when Unidentified Flying Objects were sighted over the town by numerous citizens in the area. Beautiful Giant Hot Air Balloons are the center-piece of the two day adventure that features hour long rides across the Sand Mountain area in lighter-than-air aircraft. They make a truly spectacular sight especially when all fifteen to twenty of them are floating across the early morning and late afternoon skyline. Vendors and great entertainment comprised of talented local musicians and special guests, along with some of the best vittles and such that this part of the state has to offer make the Fyffe UFO Days a great weekend destination.
