Despite the raid being canceled and warning issues from the U.S. military.

This Friday, only a handful of the millions who signed up to “Storm Area 51” actually pulled up to the secretive U.S. military base in Nevada — 75 to be exact. One person was also apparently arrested for urinating near the entrance gate, as reported by BBC.

The raid started as a joke by a California student named Matty Roberts back in June. Roberts created the notorious “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Catch Us All” Facebook event, encouraging users on the social media platform to charge the base and get through security. Just days after the event launched, a slew of people signed up for the march and it eventually became viral. Unfortunately, however, the event was canceled by Roberts and co-organizers after the US Air Force issued warnings against trespassing onto the base. 

Although the raid was cancelled, Roberts kicked off his Alien Stock music festival this past Thursday — a venue located in downtown Las Vegas and just 27 miles away from Area 51.
