If you were there this last Saturday September 15th, you know that we celebrated Airport Day and you definitely don’t need us to tell how successful it was! Saturday was a day filled with smiles and activities for the family. We got to say thank you personally to all the people that gave us such an amazing year -yourself included!- and to celebrate Ithaca’s community by giving back to some of our most important charities. With the 5K race, the delicious all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast East Hill Flying Club hosted and the Great Ithaca Bake-Off, we fundraised for the SPCA of Tompkins county, The Sunrise Rotary Club and The Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes. It doesn’t matter if you had a blast with us on Saturday 15th or if you didn’t get a chance to come. We though you all might enjoy seeing the highlights of this memorable day!

Racers of all ages and backgrounds participated on this year’s 5K. If you asks us, you were all champions in our eyes.

After the race, the East Hill Flying Club took care of breakfast. They masterfully flipped those pancakes to feed all the racers. Did we mention that it was all-you-can eat?

There was room for everyone, and enough options to keep every member of the family satisfied. There even were gluten-free pancakes!

After breakfast, more fun began. Airport Day was a great way to get your cute-dog fix, just look at those fluffy woofers! The owners were so happy to let you play with them, they would even make them to tricks for the children. Adorable!

Speaking of children, they probably had the most fun out of anyone.  We made sure that all their favorites were available. Donn’t believe us? Keep scrolling!

We hired entertainers to delight the children with their creations. The lines were so long, every children must’ve left with a ballon or two. Their smiles were unbeatable, and the main reason we planned such a day for you all.

This little guy wasn’t the only one taking advantage of the food trucks. But who can resist ice cream? We certainly couldn’t!

Tommy really is a sight to see. Adults and children alike were in awe at the wonderfully maintained Thomas – Morse Scout airplane. It will be taking it’s centennial flight this September 25th. Don’t miss it soaring through the air!

 

And last but not least, the Great Ithaca Bake – Off wowed the audiences with wonderful pastries. Many local restaurants, supermarkets and business prepared their specialties for all to sample. Just look at these beauties!

 

We’re sure that after seeing these photos, you’ll definitely want to stop by next year. But here’s to this amazing and succseful Airport Day!
