Fly-in set for Aug. 24
IRONWOOD — Changes are coming for this year's Gogebic-Iron County Airport Fly-In, slated for Saturday, Aug. 24. “We are hoping for better weather with the earlier date,” said Fly-In committee chair Donna Scorse.
Welcoming ceremonies begin at 10 a.m. This year there will be four aircrafts offering free plane rides to youth aged 8 to 17, accompanied by a parent or guardian, and another aircraft will be available for younger children with parents to fly for a small fee.
This year's event will include crafters, a farmers market, a duck pick, Happy Days the clown, face painting, and a sawdust scramble, as well as a large selection of food vendors.
The new terminal will host an open house.
“There will be a lot for children and families to do,” said Scorse. “It's a day to get acquainted with your airport, and a full day of fun.”
Gogebic County Transit will provide shuttle service for people parking a distance from the airport.
