If you know anything about Put-in-Bay, you probably know that it’s a popular Lake Erie weekend getaway. People drive to Port Clinton or Sandusky from all over the Midwest and hop onto ferries to get across the lake for a weekend of fun. But, Put-in-Bay and the Lake Erie islands also have a growing pilot population. Put-in-Bay is also full of residents who are enthusiastic about antique cars. These two communities join together for a spectacular afternoon in August. On this Sunday, vintage automobile fans and aviation enthusiasts get together at the Annual 3W2 Fly-in at Put-in-Bay! Put-in-Bay has a famous Antique Car Parade every Sunday during the summer. This time it changes it’s closing destination to the airport. This way it can join up with the fly-in for a pig roast you won’t soon forget! If you love planes or antique vehicles, join us for this one!
