Published DateGILFORD - Laconia Municipal Airport is hosting its second annual Wings, Water, & Wheels Open House on Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The airport is located at 65 Aviation Drive in Gilford. There is no charge for admission.
Last year's open house was challenged by inclement weather yet the event still brought in over 500 enthusiastic visitors. This year's event will offer the public even more displays and plenty of activities. Added to the new and expanded roster are helicopter and Segway rides.
Static displays include World War II vehicles from the Wright Museum of Wolfeboro, airplanes of all kinds, boats, motorcycles and automobiles, as well as Made in NH craft, food and drink vendors.
Raffles for scenic airplane rides and gift certificates to area merchants will be held to benefit Laconia Airport-based, non-profit WinnAero (www.winnaero.org), and the organization's aviation education programs for youth. For the children attending the open house, there will be interactive activities, such as an opportunity to experience flight simulation, a chance to fly a model airplane or even learn about the Civil Air Patrol.
