Airmail Centennial Celebration

Saturday, August 11, 2018


Celebrate with us as we mark the 100th anniversary of the first airmail delivery by the U.S. Postal Service! Participate in engaging hands-on activities for all ages led by numerous museums, community, and aviation partners. Get an up close and personal look at the Curtiss Jenny, and other historic planes flying in for the day. Chat with pilots and mingle with fellow aviation buffs. Bring an envelope or postcard for a special airmail cancellation. Discover the art of rib making, imagine flying an open cockpit plane while reading a map, learn about navigation and more! Entertainment and food trucks will be onsite with food and beverage for purchase.
