Support the Marching Giants and have fun at the Fly/In Cruise/In!

Posted on Aug. 20 2014 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
The annual Fly/In Cruise/In car and air show is coming up soon at the Marion Municipal Airport, and with it comes the Marching Giants' all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Come on out to the airport and support our musicians as they head back into competition season for the first time in several years!

Check out this WIWU "Crossroads" feature from last year's Fly/In Cruise/In for a taste of what's in store:

 
The pancake breakfast this year is set for 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 30. Tickets are $5 in advance, available from any MHS band member, or at the airport, 5904 S. Western Ave., or at the Bright House Networks Marion office, 2923 S. Western Ave. Tickets at the door are $8 for adults, $3 for kids 8 and younger.

There is no admission charge to the show itself, which runs until 2 p.m.

The show this year will feature classic cars and other vintage vehicles, along with dozens of aircraft. The special feature this year is the C-54 "Spirit of Freedom", a flying museum with displays about the Berlin Airlift, a major global response in the late 1940s to one of the first major international crises of the Cold War. The "Spirit of Freedom" is part of the Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation. Click here to learn more about the organization. 

Also featured will be helicopter rides for an additional cost. Click here to learn more.

Don't miss this unique local event that has supported our band program for many years!

The new school year is here! It's a great time to be a Marion Giant. At our First Day Celebration Friday morning at Marion High School's Walton Performing Arts Center, community members gathered to encourage and thank Marion Community Schools teachers and staff.
