From Roswell To Rose Bowl, UFO Float Caravan Stops In Los Lunas

Kenn Rodriguez
News-Bulletin Staff Writer

Los Lunas Valencia County is not known for UFO sightings, but it
will play a part in a UFO encounter Friday and Saturday, Dec. 28
and 29, as A Cruise To The Rose Parade rolls through Los Lunas
on the famed Route 66.

The cruise of classic cars, which is sponsored by the New Mexico
Department of Tourism, Expo New Mexico and Roswell UFO Museum,
starts in Roswell at the city's UFO Museum Friday morning and
stops in Moriarty at El Comedor de Anaya restaurant before
making its way to Los Lunas for a reception at the village hall
at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Karen Duffy, marketing director for Expo New Mexico, said the
reception is "part of the promotion for the excitement of having
a float in the Rose Parade.

Valencia County so great about always participating in car
events and activities, so we're making our way through Los Lunas
in addition to Moriarty and Gallup because it's always so good
about helping the car culture out."

The reception, which will include appetizers and music, is being
hosted by Los Lunas Mayor Louis Huning.

The group will leave Saturday morning after a breakfast at their
host hotel, the Los Lunas Inn and Suites. After the breakfast,
which is open to the public, the cars will caravan out of town.
Duffy said local car enthusiasts are welcome to come show their
cars and ride out to Gallup on N.M. 6. She added some local cars
are planning to be part of the caravan.

"We have 15 cars, some vintage cars, but we don't want to
exclude anyone," she said. "We don't want to be snobs. We want
everyone to come. Anyone who wants to go is more than welcome to
come along."

Duffy said a group of New Mexicans headed out Wednesday to begin
working on the float itself. So far the caravan itself is
planned to have 33 people in it, she said.

In addition to the stop in Gallup, the caravan has stopovers
planned in Kingman, Ariz. On Saturday, Dec. 30 and Pomona,
Calif. on Sunday, Dec. 31.

"Our promotion in Kingman is sort of 'Space Cowboys,' the old
west meets aliens," Duffy said. "We're just going to have fun
along the way and promote New Mexico tourism."

Rachel Pugh, director of the Valencia County Chamber of
Commerce, was instrumental in bringing the cars to Los Lunas.
For information or to reserve a place at the breakfast, call her
