Wings & Wheels 2019 takes flight!

With Wings & Wheels 2019 set to take place the weekend of October 4th and 5th, planning is nearly complete. Things will kick off Friday with Pathways to Aviation Day where 125 high school students will spend the day at the Delaware Coastal Airport learning from aviation experts. Students will meet with representatives from local colleges, employers, and more as they delve into what it means to begin a career in the aviation field.

Friday evening, we celebrate all things peace, love, and happiness at our annual fundraising dinner with Kathie Martin’s Tribute to the Woodstock Generation. Benefitting the Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation and the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce, this year’s event will be held on the grounds of the Delaware Coastal Airport. Ticket price is $50 per person and includes dinner from Lighthouse Catering.

We are also excited to welcome Brigadier General Charles McGee, (USAF/Ret) to Wings & Wheels weekend as our honored guest. Brig. Gen. McGee is a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen (332nd Fighter Group), was a fighter pilot during WWII, Korea and Vietnam, and flew more combat missions than any Air Force Fighter Pilot at 409. He is a recipient of the Bronze Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, and Legion of Merit, flew a P51 Mustang escorting bombers over Germany, Austria, and the Balkans and later became an instructor for the B25 Mitchell Bomber (with more than 6300 flying hours). Being at Wings & Wheels will put him back with the two aircraft he is most familiar with – the B-25 Mitchell Bomber, Panchito (owner Larry Kelley & The Delaware Aviation Museum), and the P-51 Mustang, Rosalie (owner, Ezra Rickards). Brig. Gen. McGee will be the keynote speaker at the Pathways to Aviation Program on Friday Morning (HS Students), a featured guest at the Friday night dinner show, and available for photos and questions at the Panchito booth during Saturday’s car show and fly-in.

Saturday’s free event runs from 10 am – 4 pm beginning with an Opening Ceremony including the National Anthem and Presentation of Colors by the Sussex Central ROTC Color Guard. Events at the airport throughout the day include a vintage aircraft fly-in, classic car show, featured speakers, live entertainment, and craft & food vendors. 2019 will also see the return of the fan-favorite Flour Bombing Competition at 2:00 pm as well as the Official Naval Academy Parachute Team.

We are also proud to welcome the Historical Vintage Car Club of Delaware as our partners on the 2019 car show. With awards in numerous categories, goodie bags for all pre-registered vehicles, and dash plaques for the first 200 registrants, this year’s show is looking to be our biggest and best yet. It WILL sell out, so register your vehicles soon!

The Arts & Flowers non-profit group has been decorating the town of Georgetown with scarecrows each fall, created by businesses to advertise their business.

Any business in the 19947 area is eligible to create a scarecrow, using the t-form we provide for free advertising! 

This event is a fall highlight for the town of Georgetown.  The light poles located on East Market Street during late September through October are decorated with scarecrows and cornstalks for a festive look that catches everyone’s attention. 

To make it even more exciting, this year we will again be awarding prizes –

                a $100 VISA gift card will be awarded to three businesses for their creativity!

 

You must register to be able to participate – space is limited to just 18 poles!

Deadline for registration is Friday, September 6th

 

Rules for this contest are as follows:

Georgetown has a long history spanning back to 1791 when the county seat moved there from Lewes, which was criticized for being too far from western Delaware. Originally, Georgetown was laid out in a large square, but that was quickly changed to the circle we all associate with Georgetown with the historic Georgetown Circle at the center.
