Tractors Pulling Planes? Yep, at This Weekend's Heritage of Flight Festival
It’s only Tuesday, but that hardly means that’s it too early to start talking about—and planning—some stuff to do this weekend. If you’re looking to get outside to enjoy the cooler temperatures but also want a little entertainment, there’s always the option to attend a fall festival. Lucky for you we have one in mind, and it’s all taking place this weekend in New Carlisle, Ohio.
This weekend the eighth annual Heritage of Flight Festival and Parade rolls into town, as stuff is scheduled for October 5, 6, and 7. The highlight of the festival has to be the tractor pull, but we’re not talking about the usual country fair style tractor pull. Here the tractors are pulling airplanes on a parade route right through the center of town, so if you’ve ever wanted to see a biplane being towed by a John Deere tractor—this is the place to accomplish that mission.
Events (and the plane parade) start rolling right around 11am on Saturday, so start stalking your spot on the parade route early.
It’s not just airplanes either, as the classic cars—maybe as many as 800 of them—will also be lining the city streets as soon as Friday afternoon. If you’re looking for some silly stuff they’ve got that too; Saturday afternoon is when festival organizers and attendees are looking to set the world record for funky chicken dancing.
Bake sales, wing eating contests, and a homemade ice cream social round out the weekend events. Best of all admission to mostly everything is pretty much free, but of course you’re on your own when it comes to funding your access to all the festival munchies.
