Organizers of the upcoming Carbondalien Festival hope to have 30 6-foot-tall, customized wooden aliens crash land at participating city businesses by Sept. 1 — marking the martians’ first contact with the city ahead of the Nov. 9 festival.

The festival will hold a “Business Night Out” cocktail party on June 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hotel Anthracite, 25 S. Main St., Carbondale, which is sponsoring the evening, to unveil the aliens and discuss how businesses can collaborate. The “Adopt-an-Alien” sponsorship starts at $300 for one of the aliens, or $275 during the business night out, with different sponsorship tiers topping out at a $5,000 “The Final Frontier” package.
