Kelly, Kentucky is expanding its festival marking the legend of an encounter with visitors from outer space.  The Kelly Community Organization’s "Little Green Men" Festival will be two days this year. The celebration starts Friday in the small town about 10 miles north of Hopkinsville.  Local legend says a flying saucer and alien beings visited the tiny Christian County community on August 21st, 1955.  Community Organization President Frank Brown says the festivities will include a screening of the 2005 documentary "Monsters of the UFO: The Incident At Kelly."
