From 11am to 3pm, stop by the food trucks, listen to live music, and join in the other festivities. There will be a short presentation and a raffle at noon.

Costs for scenic flights will be free for children under 10 years of age and $20 for children 10 – 18 years of age, and $40 for adults. Flights will be offered from 11:30am to 1:30pm, weather permitting. Note this will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the spots are filled, there will not be any more sold. Passengers will check in at the front counter downstairs and pay, then will be given tickets with their scenic flight time on it. 

Kenmore Air also has an internationally renowned maintenance department. Guided facility tours will be available from 11:00am to 1:00pm, including a look at their new Otter Hangar. Completed last year, the new building is large enough to fit even a twin turbine de Havilland Otter on amphibious floats. Plus, you’ll be able to take your photo up close and personal with a seaplane.
