Podcast - May 28, 2019.

Jimmy Hinshaw is a lifelong resident of Spruce Pine. His parents have been involved with the community for years. Jimmy is interested in helping Spruce Pine become the best community it can be. Small towns have unique personalities, and Spruce Pine is no different. The creation of S.P.A.C.E. (Spruce Pine Ailen Conference and Expo) has brought excitement and the idea of economic prosperity to this bustling NC nountain community. Closures of local manufacturing plants have sometimes dimmed the hope of prosperity - but that is a condition that will hopefully be sparked by events coming to the area such as S.P.A.C.E. Jimmy has led the way by providint financial support for the event. S.P.A.C.E. is a grassroots event where locals will be comig together to really help and make something good happen for the community.

CLICK HERE FOR THE SHOW. Guests include Robert Storch Marketing Director at Wunderfy and in charge of publicity for S.P.A.C.E. Spruce Pine Alien Conference and EXPO.

Mitchell County, North Carolina is home to the most UFO sightings in all of NC. There have been many unexplained events and sightings in the Western NC Mountains. That combined with the fact that most if not all the quartz used in Space Telescopes, most any technology with a microchip and the tiles used on NASA space shuttles come from Spruce Pine and the surrounding areas. That makes Spruce Pine the perfect backdrop for the first annual Alien Conference.

On June 14th and 15th in downtown Spruce Pine NC, the Spruce Pine Alien Conference and Expo will beam down. This multidimensional event is expected to bring 10,000 visitors from around the United States. The featured speaker will be Mike Bara from the History Channel's Ancient Aliens.

Also, there will be a number of panel discussions by local authors, researchers and Alien experts. During the day, residents and visitors will be allowed an open mike to tell their stories about close encounters and strange events. Events will run from 7 pm to 10 pm on Friday and 9 am to 8 pm on Saturday. Friday will include free concerts and trips to the Dark Sky Observatory.

On Saturday there will be ongoing events:

  • 9:00am to 8:00pm: Festival Open
  • 10:00am to 11:00am : E.T. Bike Races
  • 12:00pm: Car Show DriveThru Upper Street
  • 3:00pm to 4:00pm: Unidentified Floating Object River Race
  • 2:pm to 3:pm and 4 to 5 pm: Mike Bara (tickets required, limited seating)
  • 8:00pm to 10:00pm: Bands

For those that love to play the part there will be a "My Favorite Martian" costume contest for the young and young at heart. Plus an exciting E.T. Children's Bike Race.
