Vectren Dayton Air Show 2013 Family 4-Pack Giveaway


Mark your calendars! The Vectren Dayton Air Show will be held in just a few weeks on June 22 – 23, 2013 at the Dayton International Airport. This year's show is featuring some great aeroacrobatic performances along with some historic fighter planes, too!  I love the sights and sounds as the planes fly across the viewing area.  There is truly nothing like it!

This year's lineup has many fan favorites including Team AeroShell, Mike Goulian an Aerobatic performance,  Team Fastrax, MiG17, The Jet Time School Bus, The Great Wall of Fire and many more. You can find the entire performer list along with the show schedule to plan your day.

You will be keeping your eyes up to the skies. However, be sure to check out more than 100 Static Aircraft that will be displayed.  You can even step inside some of them to get a closer look. This is a great way to learn the history and importance that these planes have had for our country.  My boys love the Air Force Museum so I know this one will sure be a cool exhibit for them.


The Vectren Dayton Air Show is one of the few shows to feature an interactive display exhibit inspired by the new Disney movie, Planes.  It will feature all the characters from the movie along with a flying performance by Dusty.  You can grab a few tattoos, coloring sheets, stickers and more.

The Vecten Kids' Hanger is the perfect spot for the younger kids to take a break from the heat.  This was a lifesaver for us since last year was extremely hot!  Some activities include:

  • Giant Sandbox
  • Face Painting
  • Crafts
  • Backyard Gym
  • Possible Autograph Spot

Aerospace Adventure will be a must for all school-aged kids.  Here you will find hands-on activities, demonstrations along with experiments that are recommended for kids ages 6-16 years old.  The activites will be focused on aerospace and will include rocketry, flying simulators, experiments and more!

General Admission Tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Youth (6-11) and Seniors, Kids 5 and under are Free and can be purchased here. However, you can use your Kroger Plus Card at Dayton area Kroger stores to purchase and save $3 off each ticket.  Also, parking is $10 and a decent walk to the gates so I would wear comfortable walking shoes.

However, the best deal is to plan ahead and save 30% off by purchasing the Family 4-Pack for only $74.95.  This package will is available for advance sale until Friday, June 21st at 12 pm.  It includes the following:

  • 4 General Admission Tickets
  • 4 Hot Dogs
  • 4 Pepsis
  • 1 General Admission Parking Pass (package purchased by 6/16/2013)
  • 1 Air Show Souvenir Program

This is a great because you cannot bring coolers or large bags to the show.  You will receive a voucher that you can use at the concession stands throughout the airport.  The souvenir program was a hit with my boys because they would look at the pictures nonstop for weeks after the show.  It is a great momento that you can take home with you.

    As a kid, my favorite thing to see was all of the stunts that the planes would do.

    My favorite memories is when we took my son (he was 3 at the time). The Pearl Harbor bombing sent him running as fast as he could, right into one of the pavilion tents.

    My favorite memory is when my little guy was sitting in a helicopter and flipped some switch and the blades started to move! YIKES they scooted him out of the helicopter quick!

    Our “little guy” would be thrilled to go to the Air Show! Fingers Crossed!

  • kristi - June 14, 2013 @ 2:08 pm

    We used to go to the air show every year when I was a child. I remember my mom packing lots of grapes and fruit to snack on because it was always so hot! I would love to take my kiddos to the air show, especially my one son, who dreams of becoming a fighter pilot someday! Pick me! :-)
