For some high-flying family fun over the 4th of July weekend, be sure to take in these two exciting events: Gig Harbor Wings & Wheels on Sunday, July 3, and the Tacoma Freedom Fair Air Show on Independence Day, July 4th.
Wings & Wheels takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tacoma Narrows Airport in Gig Harbor. Walk among rows of gorgeous classic cars and trucks from all eras, peek under the hood and talk to owners. Exhilarating airplane fly-bys will be soaring overhead, Smoke-N-Thunder jet cars are scheduled to scream down the runway at 300 miles per hour ~ there’s something for everybody. Food, craft and vendor booths, a beer garden and activity zone for kids are all part of the fun. Meet pilots and take a ride on a DC-3 or a biplane.
The Tacoma Freedom Fair takes place all day on the Ruston Way Waterfront in Tacoma. It features all the usual 4th of July activities: the amazing Freedom Fair Air Show over Commencement Bay from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., great food, vendors, exhibits, rides, and all kinds of events. It’s hailed as the South Sound’s biggest annual event and ends with the Northwest’s biggest firework show over Puget Sound.
Happy 4th of July from Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard!
