Every year on Father’s Day AHMEC hosts FatherFest, a great day to honor Dad for all he does. What better way to say “Thank you'” than an awesome helicopter ride? We have antique cars and motorcycles, games for the children, vendors and music.
The 2016 FatherFest was held on Sunday, June 19. The day featured helicopter rides, antique car and motorcycle shows, International Drone Day with remote control (drone) helicopter racing by Skygear Solutions, a beer garden, food trucks, music by DJ Albert with Fast Eddie, jugglers, magic show and sensational science stations, Darth Vader from "Star Wars, and fun inflatables like a 20' Dual Lane Slide, Playland Obstacle Course, Jungle Adventure Bounce and Slide Combo and Sports Carnival Games.
This year's FatherFest will be Sunday, June 18, 10 am-3 pm. featuring many of the same exciting activities like helicopter rides, the car and motorcyle shows and food trucks. We will be adding some new items, too, like "Take Me Home Huey," Steve Maloney’s mixed-media sculpture composed of a transformed boneyard U.S. Army Huey helicopter that served as an air ambulance during the Vietnam War.
The Batmobile and Batcopter will be returning to AHMEC with the opportunity to ride in the Batcopter. Holy Rotors, Batman, we can hardly wait!
