Everyone is invited to bring the whole family to enjoy the new playground equipment and have a fun filled day.

It is the Committee’s dream to make the park a place that people of all ages can enjoy.





42ND ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SEAPLANE FLY-IN

The 42nd Annual International Seaplane Fly-In will begin on Thursday, September 10th and continue through Sunday, September 13th. This unique fly-in began in 1973 with a few weekend local pilots that flew people in and out the Moosehead Lake region. Every year, more pilots would participate and by 1995, the International Fly-In was created. Now, hundreds of pilots participate in an array of contests, while thousands of spectators line the shore of the Moosehead Lake region to see the different planes and browse downtown local shops and vendors.
Spectators can expect to see a wide variety of different planes including Cessna’s, Cubs, Beavers, along with rare antique planes from the 1940’s to modern experimental planes. The pilots will be participating in a number of contests including, taxi slalom, take-off, spot landing, and bomb drop. The bomb drop consists of taking the plane up in the air, lining up the target, then dropping the grapefruit from the plane, attempting to hit the target, which is an inflatable buoy.
The International Fly-In Association is a non-profit organization whose main focus is to provide aviation education to participants and spectators. A scholarship is provided each year to a deserving high school student who plans to further his/her education in aviation or related field.
