The Edinburg UFO Conference & Festival was inspired, in part, by a very strange event that occurred north of town in 1966. Here is a presentation that was done at the location of the incident by author Noe Torres and Joe Ponce, son of the deputy sheriff that investigated the original case:

Below is the full report on what happened.

Number of witnesses: 8
Location: Farm to Market Rd 490, approximately 4 miles west of U.S. Highway 281.
Just North of Edinburg, Texas

In October or November of 1966, J. R. “Milo” Ponce, a deputy sheriff with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department, received a phone call at around midnight from the sheriff’s department dispatcher, George Rapp. The dispatcher stated that someone had called in to report a group of “disturbed” men standing alongside Farm to Market Highway 490, north of Edinburg, Texas, near Laguna Seca Road.
