    The airport director, John Patterson, is excited to be able to host this event stating: “The airport is an integral part of the Clarksville-Montgomery County community. I restarted this event after several years to give the families of the community a day to come out, have fun, and let people see what the airport is all about. With all the different attractions I believe there’s something for everyone. Making it a free event was also important and I hope this continues to grow and everyone walks away with a great experience.”

    “Last year’s event had a great turn out with hundreds of patrons from the community who bought plane rides, supported our local food truck vendors, and brought their families to enjoy the bouncy houses!” commented from Toni Chambers, the airport Accounts & Marketing Manager.
