The 52nd Annual Father’s Day Fly-In will take place this weekend at the Columbia Airport.
Benny Stuth, Tuolumne County Airport Manager, was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The fun starts both Saturday and Sunday at 7:00 am with the traditional Boy Scout Troop Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast, followed by each day’s festivities. The fly-in hours are from 8 AM – 3:30 PM both days, followed by a $10 dinner featuring carnitas, chicken, carne asada and grilled veggie tacos under a shade canopy on Saturday beginning at 5:00 PM.
Airplane rides are available in various aircraft and this year, everyone will be given one free raffle ticket with each paid admission on Saturday. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the Information Booth. All tickets will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing for either a Stearman or a B-25 ride.
Other prizes include posters, mugs, hats, t-shirts, and tickets for the Saturday night dinner.
Any aviation enthusiast will enjoy this show, which includes aerial demonstrations and many vintage, classic, experimental and restored aircraft on hand for viewing by the public.
Additionally, there will be plenty of vendors with various collectibles, food and drink.
Admission is only $5 at the gate (free for children aged 12 and under) with free parking and a shuttle ride available from the Columbia Elementary campus.
