The National Aviation Academy will kick off the day with their annual free open house with aviation demonstrations, open hangars, games for kids, and plenty of planes to see, touch, and sit in.  Also, there will be hot air balloon rides (WX permitting) and plenty of food!!!  Celebrate your new PR at the Post 5K Party  Hosted by Jack’s Abby Beer and including BBQ, and live music!
