Saturday, 12/14 - Sunday, 12/15
11am - 7pm

I took the family to this event last year. There is a parking lot at the field. They allow drive up donations, but we parked and got out of the car to make the donation. Our kids gave the toys to the Marines and visited with Santa. Santa gave the kids blimp erasers and tattoos. We asked for a tour and one of the blimp's pilots walked us over to the blimp for an up close look, pictures, and Q&A time. It was thrilling to be so close to something that we normally only see from afar. We visited at dusk and it was very cold and windy, make sure you bundle up! Visit before sundown for the best photos. You can also enter a raffle for a chance to win a flight on the Goodyear Blimp!
