Dawn Patrol Set for Father’s Day Sunday

June 19, 2009 by WLKM 

The upcoming weekend will bring the wrap-up events for this year’s Three Rivers Water Festival plus the annual Dawn Patrol fly-in/drive-in pancake breakfast on Father’s Day – Sunday, June 21st.

The Dawn Patrol will be staged from 7 a.m. to 12 noon at the Three Rivers Airport.

The event will feature plane rides, powered parachute rides, vintage and experimental airplanes, “fly-in” aircraft of all kinds, Air Care helicopter, alcohol funny car, and kiddy train.

There will be static displays from the Three Rivers Fire Department, Three Rivers Police Department, the Mounted Posse Division and Scuba Diving Team from the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department, classic cars, radio-controlled planes, antique engines, and more!

Dawn Patrol attendees will be able to enjoy breakfast in the hangar while watching airplanes “fly in” and “taxi” on the tarmac.

Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, coffee, juice and milk.

Tickets can be purchased at the event – adults, $7, kids from 5 to 12, $4.  Children under 5 are free.

The Three Rivers Pilots Association is a non-profit organization whose members consist of men and women who love to fly.  Profits are used to improve the airport and promote youth in aviation.

The Dawn Patrol is a “bonus event” to the Three Rivers Water Festival.
