OTHER FOOD OPPORTUNITIES: The Vinton County Band Boosters will have their very popular food area in the rear of the airport’s shelter house.

THE AIR SHOW: The main event will begin at 1 p.m. Bring lawn chairs for your comfort.
THE CANDY DROP: A Candy Drop for the youngsters will be held near the end of the air show. It’s quite a sight to see hundreds of kids racing to the runway to pick-up as much candy as they can find.
AIRPLANE RIDES: Those interested can take an airplane ride following the show. Get your tickets early since the line can get long. The cost is $30 per person.
