Takeoff down the runway…before flying with “Planes”
August 1, 2019
Movie Night at Braden Airpark returns on Saturday, August 17th with Fireworks Finale
(Forks Township, PA) – Movie at the Airpark presented by the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA) returns on Saturday, August 17th with the showing of “Planes” by Disney and a fireworks finale immediately following the movie. This event is FREE to the public.
This year’s event also gives kids the opportunity to soar over Forks Township. Prior to the movie, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 70 will be providing FREE airplane rides between 4:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. (must be between 8-17 years old).
“Introducing aviation to a younger audience might spark an interest in learning to fly and setting them on a future career where the sky is the limit. Right in their own backyard, a rejuvenated Braden Airpark is the perfect place for that dream to takeoff,” said Thomas R. Stoudt, Executive Director, LNAA.
Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with the parking entrance located off Uhler Road. The movie will be displayed on a 40’ x 20’ screen provided by Fun Flicks. Show time is 8:30 p.m.
Bring a blanket or comfortable chairs to create your perfect viewing space on the airfield and we’ll provide the rest.
*No pets, coolers, outside food/beverage, or camping on the airfield is permitted. All bags are subject to search before entering the Airport.
Pilot Note: Any pilot joining the event by flying to Braden Airpark must land before the runway closes at 7:30 p.m. Departures are prohibited until the conclusion of the movie.
LNAA will be accepting donations to support The Children’s Home Easton – a private, non-profit organization established in 1885, to provide a caring, nurturing environment for children in need, as well as assistance for their families. For more information, please visit: www.thechildrenshome.org.
