Memorial Day Weekend Area Events

Posted on May 22, 2018 at 2:13 PM by Nicole McGinnis

Floyd W Jones Lebanon Airport kicks off the Holiday Weekend Festivities with their 'Fly on the Ford' Event co-sponsored by the local EAA Chapter happening May 24-27th, 2018. 
Experience the golden age of aviation and take a flight in EAA’s immaculate Ford Tri-Motor, giving passengers an opportunity to travel back to the early days of luxurious commercial flight.  Affectionately dubbed the “Tin Goose” after its distinct all-metal look, the Ford Tri-Motor is commonly known as the first mass-produced airliner from aviation’s formative years.  Advanced online pricing and walk-up pricing is available. Call 1-877-952-5395 or visit  for more information.

If you would rather your method of travel be on 4 wheels, have no fear!  The 8th Annual Wagons for Warriors will be trotting into town Friday, May 25th, 2018 at the Laclede County Fairgrounds.  After watching them parade into town on Friday, come back on Saturday and join over 30 authentic chuckwagons that have traveled from as far as North Caroline and Texas for this years event.  Entertainment begins at 10 a.m. with lunch being served starting at Noon.  $10 per person to eat and children under 5 are free.  There will also be Cowboy Church at the Wagons on Sunday, May 27th at 9 a.m.  for advanced tickets or information visit:
