Nevada County Air Show

While we leap into a holiday weekend here in Nevada County, mark your calendars for next weekend’s Nevada County Airfest, July 7 & 8, at the Nevada County Airport (KGOO).  The two day event packs in lots of activities, kids activities, food court, pancake breakfast and more!  Check out the Friday night Twlight Hangar party with live music by Lolo Gervais (5-10pm), displays of vintage aircraft, vehicles and the magic of Nick Fedoroff.  Saturday is a full day of High Flying Family Fun (8am-4pm), with flying highlights with World War II vintage fighters, bombers and trainers and thrilling radio-controlled model airplane demonstrations.  AirFest 2017 is hosted by the Golden Empire Flying Association, a non-profit organization that promotes growth, enjoyment and safety of aviation while raising money for scholarships and facilities improvements at the Nevada County Airport.  You can buy tickets online or post a comment on this blog post and I’ve got 2 tickets to giveaway for the Saturday event, winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 5th.  *Edited to say the winner is Diane Richards.

    The custom built experimental aircraft here at the show are really something to see, a lot from our own local area.

    I have fond memories of attending the air show, we try and make it out there every year. I’ve been going since my son was knee high to me (he’s now 18!). Loved seeing the Patriots jet last year, that was COOOOL!
