UFO Day« Back to Events
Belleville, straddling Dane and Green Counties, is not only a pretty town but apparently a draw for UFOs. Numerous sightings were reported in and around town, particularly in the late 1980s. They celebrate these unidentified flying objects with UFO Day every year.
This year, the 31st annual UFO Day takes place on Saturday, October 28th with a parade, a craft fair, a Fun Run, kids’ costume contest, games, and the Monster Costume Ball. New events include a Dog/Owner Look-a-Like Contest and the Cake Walk.
Belleville is in far southern Dane County, brushing the Green County line. Highways 69 and 92 give you access to the town, which features historic buildings in Library Park and beautiful topography in any direction before and after the UFO Day festivities! It’s about 20 minutes from Madison, south of Verona on Highway 69.
