Return to the Kecksburg UFO!

We arrived at our hotel in Connellsville, PA that Friday and spent the remainder of the evening watching my son’s favorite show, Ghost Adventures. The following day I’d planned for us to see the Pittsburgh Zoo but worried we’d never get back in time for the Weird Al Yankovic concert that evening. Rather than risk being late, I decided to let the kids sleep in and looked for things closer to do. I was surprised to discover our hotel was only twenty-five minutes from the Kecksburg UFO which I’d visited almost exactly four years earlier. This development inspired me to hold off on my originally planned story for Scary Monsters Magazine #109 and feature this locale in the next WEIRD USA column instead. Since I’m saving all the details for the magazine (which is your cue to subscribe to it) I’ll just share some photos taken that day…

After we left, we ate lunch at the Big Mac Museum in North Huntingdon before getting ready for the show. Weird Al was awesome as always and we had great seats! Meeting him afterwards was literally a dream come true. The next day we checked out of the hotel and headed to West Virginia. Home of the Mothman and Flatwoods Monster!
