This week Lakeland Linder Regional Airport becomes the busiest airport in the world during the annual Sun ‘n Fun event, with over 40,000 recorded aircraft movements. Sun ‘n Fun’s mission is to share the aviation experience with people of all ages through education, information and inspiration.
For those of us who are not pilots, Sun ‘n Fun is a time to see hundreds of unique aircrafts, learn about the history of aviation, and of course experience jaw dropping air shows. The highlight of this year’s event is the Blue Angels performances on Saturday and Sunday.
Florida residents can get a one day adult pass for $25 for and $10 for ages 11-17. Kids under 11 are free. You can buy tickets online or at the gate. Also, if you buy a ticket for Saturday, you can come back on Sunday for FREE. Parking is $5/day.
