The festivities will kick off Friday evening with live music, BBQ, and various food and merchandise vendors. Central FL singer/songwriter REECE will open the show with his unique country sound, and then KINGS COUNTY will finish strong with an edgy blend of modern country and class rock favorites.


On Saturday, the vendors will be ready to serve you while seaplane pilots participate in our Seaplane-A-Palooza flying competitions.


You don't want to miss the crowd's favorite "melon bomb drop"!

After the Air Show, live music will resume with the J Alan Six Band and an exceptional performance by THE WEATHERED SOULS with their distinct, rousing twist on Texas Country and southern rock! During intermission and back by popular demand will be our state-of-the-art Drone Show, which will be even better than last year's.
