ST. PATRICK’S DAY UFO VISITATION!

ST. PATRICK’S DAY UFO VISITATION!

A St. Patrick’s Day parade encountering its own UFO visitation? Really? Yes. It did. Today, was a time of so much community involvement in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Visalia, CA, the broadcasters of today’s event admitted they had seen a UFO. Mike Truesdell and his friends have done it again in purporting a continued community service presence by participating in the festive occasion. In a hastily reconstructed float from their previous, award-winning appearances in area town and city events since 2015 they managed to provide a crowd pleaser. This time, they accumulated more walkers and vehicle attendees than in those previous events.

It was a cool, clear day on Saturday, March 12, 2016, and the city streets were packed with spectators. As Mike Truesdell’s float and entourage began their drive down Main Street one heard the continued cheers and shouts of UFO’s in our midst. Even the announcers suddenly exclaimed they had just seen a UFO.

The following are some of the pictures taken during the parade:

The passion Mike has, from experience, as I have, is not limited to his continued caring about the human condition. He knows we are not alone. He knows we are all in the same situation; however, please view how many have gravitated to him over the years. His friends have endured the best and worst of times, yet they all continue to be jubilant and excited to give to the community in every way they can.

No matter what condition, infirmity due to accident, or negative life event may occur, Mike and his friends push forward. How many of you could really stand up to be counted in caring for others, as Mike Truesdell and his friends continue to do? My contention is I am honored and continually humbled to report in this fashion.

In fact, if one more person is enlightened to care about the kind and kindred spirits inhabiting Visalia, California, come on down because my being is touched, now and always.

Visalia and its population are unique, indeed, in their view of the human condition. Oh, yes, we are most fortunately blessed, as well.

A CITY CELEBRATION OF ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

A CITY CELEBRATION OF ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

Thousands of spectators lined the streets of Visalia, California in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on a fairly cool, sunny day on Saturday, March 12, 2016. After an above average rainy season to put a damper on a four-year long drought in the central valley, spirits were already elevated with the pleasant change of weather. In a long-time tradition, the yearly parade was about to begin.

The organizers, dignitaries, broadcasters, and local police blended in with a peaceful and enjoyable family experience to make this parade one for the books. An area radio station announced the event as each parade participant with a variety of floats, vehicles and marching bands entered the parade start on Main Street.

Please enjoy the following pictures of some of the parade participants and attendees:

The following are some videos to enjoy, including the parade beginning:

 

Although, this was only some of the parade’s outstanding participation by entries from Visalia and other areas from Tulare County, the city residents and others from the county area were seen to be enjoying a relaxed atmosphere. Cheers were constantly breaking out by residents who appreciated everyone in the parade. All too often, many were heard shouting and applauding family and friends participating in the event.

Visalia is a mid-sized town of around 135,000 in population; however, it still operates and conducts business in a very personable, family-style environment. Visalia is also known for some of the best restaurants and local activities in the central valley of the state.

Daily shuttles are provided for all to utilize in travel locally, as well as, to the parks. For those visiting from around the world, one cannot go wrong by taking the time to visit our fair city.

A UFO TRIBUTE

A UFO TRIBUTE

This article is a ‘UFO’ tribute to some hard work by dedicated individuals spearheaded by Mike Truesdell of Visalia, California. Mike is a UFO spotter and long-time researcher in the central valley area.

It has been well known that the central California area has been a hive of aerial sightings for many years…and some of it is not military, commercial, or individual (drone) activity. Many unsolved cases have arisen of UAP (Unidentified Aerial Activity), as well as, UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects). Mike has logged many sighting events; however, this is one unique sighting that had grownups and children alike of an entire city clapping and cheering!

[Tweet “This is a UFO tribute that finished as an award-winning parade float!”]

Here are some of the pictures provided depicting the construction process. It started with the “UFO” and the float props, such as wildlife, lighting, and presents were built around it:

As the weeks passed before the deadline loomed, Mike and his friends were quite resourceful in craft and float design, as well as, finding parts and supplies from various sources to make this project bear fruit. Among some of Mike’s friends who contributed with ideas, compressor use, and some cash were Brian, Jade, John, Arlon, Cindy, Brinda, Kim and Mike.

This team effort produced the following spectacular results for the historic Candy Cane Parade held yearly at the end of November when night falls in Visalia, California:

The weather was chilly, yet clear, and the city attendance was outstanding! The next day, social media was abuzz at the unique and a most popular float that stood out among some of the terrific creations and community-involved contributions in the parade’s history.

This festive occasion (and good weather) brought out the best by so many ushering in a holiday season that will not be soon forgotten. Area television and media organizations were very responsible and personable during this event. For this author, living in Visalia, California, it constantly makes me want to brag about how wonderful our community really is, as well as, the people are who live here. Now, and in the future, Visalia is where home is!

When the results were reported by the city newspaper the day after the parade, Mike Truesdell was humble, yet so excited to discover he and his friends had won the first place prize of $100 for the best float under 20 feet in the parade! Congratulations to everyone involved! Since Mike and I began our interviews and conversations, it has become quite apparent how much he cares about this community. His plans are now set to enter the next parade in nearby Exeter on December 31, 2015, and, of course the enthusiasm is the same as it was for the Visalia parade. It is sure to be an exciting event to attend, as well.

In times like these, it is so refreshing to see how everyday folks still take the time to produce results to bring smiles and happy memories to children, parents, and adults, alike. In sum, this is not just an article about a UFO tribute, it is also a tribute to wonderful people who not only understand the human condition, they improve it.

From us at Universal Digest, thank you.

HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

VISALIA UFO MYSTERY

VISALIA UFO MYSTERY

The 2015 Visalia UFO events have all remained a mystery. To date, with many inquiries to find out more from a number of sources, nothing more has been discovered.

This is the final article of the 2015 UFO events reported in the central California valley area. Unless, something else surfaces that could shed light on what occurred, Universal Digest has completed its investigation.

 

There were three previous articles posted in 2015 regarding sightings from February through May. Please view the articles as posted on Universal Digest.

After all the pictures from sources have previously been documented, there is one final video to be produced. With thanks to Dennis LeRoux of https://www.facebook.com/ufospottingnederland that is also a friend link site here, the following expansion and detail of the original 9-second video was produced. For the record, Dennis expected nothing nor asked for recognition for this video production. He offered it for further elaboration of the original event, only. His network and continued friendship is supported, here:

 

Since this time, our local networking has expanded. There are more of us who are continuing to keep a vigilance pointed skyward. Is it not interesting how we become so enmeshed in day-to-day lives we tend to not notice sometimes obvious events?

There are past reports and references that have been received, yet, here in Visalia, California, to be objective, speculation of what is flying around in the skies above us is just that, speculation. We here at Universal Digest refuse to embellish and/or sensationalize anything less than what can be proven. It is not to dissuade others from sending us information, it is just not to produce information based on conjecture.

As far as, interviews and interactions that have been conducted thus far, the sources remain valid and supported. These persons who approached us had no agendas and were actually reticent to even approach us or to divulge this information. In this light of respect to those who have trusted us from the beginning, they, too are most trusted and valued.

My opinion is, there should be more objective persons like Terry Wood and Debbie Mancini who should be recognized for being the humble, honest, and good people they are.

Universal Digest will always welcome and support honest and forthright contributors.
