The WWBPA bikes to find the Martians

We had perfect weather for this year’s free Martian ride, hosted jointly with the Historical Society of West Windsor and marking the 85th anniversary of Orson Welles’s “War of the Worlds” broadcast.

Because when you live where the Martians “landed” in 1938, why not go looking them?

This year’s event began at the West Windsor Senrior Center and stopped by the Martian sculpture in front of the West Windsor Arts Council, the red building at the corner of Cranbury and Millstone roads where the Martians “landed” in Grovers Mill, and at Van Nest Park, with its monumnet to the Martian “invasion”.

We thank Paul Ligeti from the Historical Society for sharing his knowledge of the broadcast and its impact.
