Annual air show slated Saturday
The event launches with an 8 a.m. buffet breakfast at the Rock of Ages/Valley View Retirement Community, south of McMinnville at 15600 S.W. Rock of Ages Road. Lunch and dinner fare will also be available later in the day.
All entertainment and activities are free. Canned food donations are being solicited in lieu of payment.
No hot air balloon rides are scheduled this year, but remote controlled aircraft demonstrations by the McMinnville Aircraft Modelers will fill the skies until 2 p.m. The McMinnville Auto Club will simultaneously host a Show and Shine car show.
Activities for children include a water slide, a bouncy house and organized games. Concerts will wrap up the show, with a series of Oregon bluegrass and gospel bands performing from 3 to 9 p.m.
