Attendees at the Wheels & Wings Fest and 5K at the Lancaster Airport on June 22 will have a chance to see the fully-restored Vietnamera Huey helicopter kept there.


The Rotary Club of Lancaster will hold its third annual Wheels and Wings Festival and 5K fundraiser at the Lancaster Airport on June 22. The event is free to spectators with onsite parking available for $5. The festival will have planes, cars, a 5K race and walk, food, drink, live music, and great prizes.

The festival begins with a 5K race at 8 a.m. The race will be held rain or shine. Registration for the race is at pretzelcitysports.com. Medals will be awarded for top three male and female finishers in six age categories, with each participant receiving a race T-shirt.

The “everything wheels” car show and fly-in runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. lancasterrotary.org/wheels-and-wings-festival-5k/.

Food trucks and food vendors will be onsite serving breakfast and lunch. Food vendors include: TJs Ice cream, Thoze Guyz, and Mad Dash. A brewery will be onsite for purchase of beer. Live music will be playing throughout the day.

The proceeds of Wheels and Wings and 5K support the Rotary Club of Lancaster’s Summer Youth Experience. The summer program, funded in partnership with the United Way of Lancaster, supports more than a thousand city youth between the ages of five through 17. The program addresses the “achievement gap” and gives them fun things to do that develop leadership skills and help prevent the “summer slide” in school.
