Photos and Story by Isabel Herbruger, age 11

WARNING – There was an Alien Abduction Attempt at the Burien UFO Festival Friday night, and it was all caught on camera:



An alert photojournalist saw a young alien waiting to get help from an officer (see cop car photo) but the patrol car was empty. While waiting for the officer to return, the little lost alien was approached by two happy men. The two men stopped, looked around for witnesses, then grabbed the little guy and took off.

A few minutes later, they were spotted laughing and having a good time with the abducted alien securely attached to their head (cop thief pic). When approached about their now foiled crime spree, the two suspects appeared to keep the young alien quiet with freshly made kettle korn, making it impossible to rescue and safely return him to the mother ship.

Proceed with caution if you see the two unnamed suspects!

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you have some fun photos from Friday night’s Burien UFO Festival, please email high-res .jpeg(s) to [email protected], and we’ll try to post the best ones!

    I loved it from start to finish and the sunny weather was perfect. We’re lucky to have quirky events like this and I’m thankful for the people who make it all happen. Burien is a wonderful place with community pride and the turn out and energy showed it.
