The fun begins at 2 p.m. You get to watch airplanes as they fly in and drop pumpkins on the target below.

Kids can wear their costumes for this event and even participate in a costume contest in the afternoon. 

The costume contest will be at about 3:30 p.m. during the pumpkin drop. (The pumpkin drop usually lasts a couple of hours, depending on how many pilots sign up to participate.)

Later in the evening, live music will be provided by Remedy from 7-11 p.m. 

There’s no admission fee for this event; just plan some spending money for food, beverages, and face painting.

Stearman Field Bar and Grill usually serves from a limited menu on the days they have fly-ins. (No coolers allowed.)

Since this is an outdoor event and very weather-dependent, be sure to keep an eye on the Stearman Field Bar & Grill Facebook page for information and announcements.
