For the past 18 years, I have lived within spitting distance (well…just about) of Ellington Field in Houston Texas.
I can still remember the first day I learned about the very popular annual air show (Wings Over Houston).
I was out shopping with my aunt at one of the nearby outdoor shopping centers when all of a sudden I heard a buzz of activity in the sky.
I looked up and was shocked and amazed to see TONS of airplanes in the sky above my head.
Not just any airplanes…military planes.
I’ll admit…I was terrified! I thought we were at war!
My aunt explained it was just the air show, and watching the air show from afar has just become a fact of my life every year!
This year will be the first year we take our children to the air show “properly” (we’ve always just gone to a nearby playground to watch, but I KNOW we definitely weren’t getting the full effect of how awesome it is from there!). I am SO excited!
This year the Wings Over Houston airshow is on October 26-27th.
I’ve been looking up the schedule, pictures and videos from the airshow and I know my kiddos will have a blast.
Here are some of the things I’m most looking forward to:
You can view the promotional one sheet for this event here.
I think my kids will be most excited to see Dusty from Planes! We haven’t seen the movie yet, but they know who Dusty is and I think they’ll be so excited!
The best part about Wings Over Houston is that it is completely a family friendly event. There is fun for ALL ages and I know you’ll have a blast when you attend this year!
