The largest event of its kind in New England will be held again this year on October 1 with even more fun for the entire family.

Special Attractions This Year: The future is here! Come see an all electric airplane demo, charged by an electric F-150 Lightning Truck, powered by renewable energy. Sustainable and accessible flight. Looking for adventure? How about nothing but a parachute and a motor on your back.
