What will I miss if I'm watching the air show from off the show grounds?

Yes you can see the airplanes flying from many locations in La Crosse but a large percentage of the air show is on the grounds. The static displays give you the opportunity to touch and feel the airplanes. Many of the performers plan their maneuvers close to the ground in front of the spectators that makes an incredible show... Bottom line...you're missing the air show if not on the grounds... Last item: If you like the airplanes and air shows we need your support... Please come through the gates to ensure the success of future shows.

Absolutely! Please bring the necessary items your children will require for an afternoon outdoors at an airshow with limited facilities. However, do not be offended if Airfest security or military personnel ask to see inside any items you are carrying in. This is being done so for your safety. Also, do not forget the essentials like sunscreen, hats, sun glasses, a camera is a must and ear protection. All of which are necessary to make the most of your, and your children's experience. Again, we do not allow pets, coolers, carry-in food, bicycles, skateboard, scooters. Your safety is our paramount concern.
