September 3, 2013
The Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire that was held at Sequim Valley Airport on August 31, September 1st was a big success! An estimated 3000 people attended the event that under perfect weather conditions provided activities and fun for families and people of all ages.
Our events included classic airplanes, classic cars, wing walkers, skydivers, formation flying with smoke trails, hot air balloon rides, exhibitions and a lighter-than-air wedding, biplane rides, RC planes, numerous vendors, food vendors, and live music.
We feel this was a great way to share the 30th anniversary of the Airport and Sequim’s Centennial with The community. We were pleased to see a lot smiles and people enjoying the event while learning more about aviation and local history.
Special thanks to Emily Westcott, Kelly Jo Hill, and Captain Crystal Stout who did a fantastic job of organizing this event. Their countless volunteer hours of hard work and dedication made this event a success. We would also like to thank the Civil Air Patrol, City of Sequim, our Sponsors and so many other volunteers who worked hard to make this event a success.
Our feedback has been extremely positive which has resulted in us deciding to have a similar sized Air Affaire Wings and Wheels Event again in late summer of 2014.
