We attended last year and had great time even though the weather didn't fully cooperate. The businesses in town, the fund-raising events, Saturday open house... everything went well. If only for a weekend, I think the event was able to wake up downtown.

There are (or have been) similar events in other parts of the country. We're planning to attend Texas Country Air in Quanah, TX in October. Might be attending Urban Air too.

We will be there and happy to help out if any volunteers are needed. Any idea who we should reach out to to see if they need any help?

Great question, we were just considering the same. My backup options are a Walmart (10 miles out), or at Firekeepers (if she'll let me gamble).

People are also more than welcome to stay at the staging area (Howe Field) the night before as well.

I would love to see some photos of this event. When you do this, are the Airstreams still hooked up to their tow vehicles? Is this a one side of the street event, or do you cover both sides with Airstreams?

Disconnected. Both Sides.

Watch the video below. You'll see how it works.

I think a lot of the "L Towns" would be good for this and would love to participate!

Longmont, Lyons, Lafayette, Louisville, etc.
