West Chester’s American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC) has an exciting day planned for Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17. The museum’s legendary FatherFest features antique cars and motorcycles, food trucks, a beer garden, sports-oriented inflatable games, helicopter rides (additional cost) and more from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
This year’s theme is “Celebrate the Wonder of Flight,” and AHMEC’s aircraft lineup doesn’t disappoint. The current schedule consists of Dr. Stanley Blazejewski’s Magni M-16 Gyrocopter, and awaiting confirmation is Atlantic City Coast Guard Flotilla, MetroAviation, JeffSTAT, PennSTAR and the Pennsylvania State Police. Adding to the “Flight” theme are birds of prey demonstrations and exhibitions from Mike Dupuy Falconry and The Falconry Girl, Sean Young.
Food trucks like Zac's Burger, Dos Gringos Mexican Kitchen, Haute Wheels and The Tot Cart offer numerous culinary delights. Malvern’s Locust Lane Brewery’s Beer Garden refreshes with awesome brews. And Kona Ice’s cold, sweet treats always satisfy on a hot day.
Additional entertainment includes DJ music by Full Moon Entertainment, Larry Smythe’s M.A.S.H. military collection and dogs from Paws for People™ Pet-Assisted Visitation Volunteer Services.
Admission is $10.00 per person. Helicopter rides cost $60.00 per person on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 10:00 a.m. until 3 p.m.
