The Wild and Wonderful Kids’ Air Faire

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Hiller Aviation Museum’s annual summer celebration of flight! Local aviation and public safety professionals bring their aircraft and vehicles for a special show-and-tell session, while the museum opens its doors to many popular aircraft.

Kids will love the hands-on activities available, including balsa glider construction, paint-a-plane, paper helicopter building, and more. These activities offer fun and educational experiences related to aviation.

This event also provides a unique opportunity to meet experts in aviation and public safety, who are available to answer questions and share their knowledge. It’s a day filled with adventure, discovery, and fun for the whole family!
