There will also be special music by Jeff Crouch and Lyndon & Patty Baines, a Pancake Breakfast, Bounce Houses, free popcorn, snowcones, and cotton candy.

Jamestown Public Works Director Steve McCoy also spoke about the event, stating:  “Scott King found an old poster in some of his dad’s belongings of the airport dedication on June 2, 1968, which is 50 years to the date of Saturday’s celebration, which was helpful in helping us in planning this event.”

The event is free to the public, other than the plane rides, which will cost $30 per person.

Concessions will also be provided by the American Legion Post 137.

There will also be a drawing for a free plane ride.
