The Chehalis Flying Saucer Party

Coming to Chehalis, WA September 21, 2019.

The Chehalis Flying Saucer Party- Celebrating the summer of the saucers! Speakers, vendors, live music, exhibits, and more! In 1947, Idaho businessman Kenneth Arnold took off from the Chehalis airport and while over Mineral, WA witnessed nine “flying disks” near Mt. Rainier. From his report, the term “flying saucer” was coined. This fueled a phenomenon across the country as more people came forward to share their accounts of strange objects in the sky. We will be celebrating Kenneth Arnold’s mark on history and other reports from around the Northwest.
