    LGA Kids' Day - 9/29/07

    On Saturday, September 29th, 2007, La Guardia Airport will host their annual Kids' Day event for Kiwanis Club.

    Going from 12pm-4pm, it is open to the public and is FREE. The public can enter near the Marine Air Terminal (it will be obvious where to go once you get there). Do not be shy to come, as it is not only for children, but also the general public. Refreshments are served (for free), photography is very much allowed, and there are many things to see.

    Airlines will bring out some planes for boarding and seeing, and there are usually displays from the NYC Department of Corrections,helicopters from various local agencies and sometimes even some fighter jets. The New York Skytypers are regular visitors and usually do a flyby at the end of the show as well.

    Last year there were about 30 NYCAers at the event. I hope as many of you come along this year as well. Bring your families and friends if you'd like.

    If anyone has more information, questions, or want to share their experiences from previous years, please post them!

    Also I saw in another post that we should get there around like 9 or 10, are the lines that bad?

    No offense to all of you mets fans, but I don't like baseball much. I am angry at my school, this is the letter that I wrote to my parents.

    Ya wanna hear the buzzkill of the year? I quite angry right now. On the 29th, LGA kids day, there is an all boarder(required) trip to the mets game. Who wants to go to a baseball game and watch a team that you don't like, nor do you care for. And, you know that your aviation buddies are a football field away having a great time with the big shiny metal planes. I really hate being a boarder.

    While I'm not a huge fan of that little league team in Queens, personally I'd much rather go to a pro baseball game, especially if it was free, than to go look at some planes and all... Granted, everyone likes different things, so that's just me; but a day at a baseball game isn't too shabby...

    Isn't there a way to get out of the game if you really wanted to?

    Dima and I will be there! Really looking forward to this year, as last year was a total blast and I actually have a camera worth taking this year :D What are the plans for pre/post event spotting, anyone?

    We have the BBQ afterwards. I assume LGA spotting will go down prior to Kids Day if weather allows.
