Let your imagination take flight during two air festivals in Ocean City Saturday and Sunday Sept. 16 and 17.

Ocean City is hosting its annual Airport Festival 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the city’s municipal airport, 26th Street and Bay Avenue. Bring all ages along for cool displays, including unique aircraft from the World War II era and other classic planes. The performers for Sunday’s Aerobatic Air Show will also be in attendance to mingle with visitors. The day includes kids’ activities, antique cars, music, food and more.

Then from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, the Boardwalk Aerobatic Airshow will take place in the skies above the ocean and beach between 6th and 14th streets. Watch in amazement as stunt pilots and aerobic champions perform astounding feats over the land and water, with this year’s show featuring parachutists gliding the beach. The day also includes military plane demonstrations to show off our nation’s finest.
