Livingston Municipal Airport welcomes you to its Fly-In/Cruise-In event Saturday, a chance to showoff all the airport has to offer.
Assistant Manager Mandy Winningham said that the yearly festival is something that Livingston looks forward to every year.
“We send out the flyers to the different airports and of course, we put it on social media and all of that,” Winningham said. “Kinda reach out to pilots that are Upper Cumberland, Jamestown, different places like that. We get them from Putnam County, from Baxter, some of the people come down from Nashville way, I can’t remember the exact airport but we get East Tennessee.”
The event features airplane and helicopter rides, food, music, and hot rods. Winningham said that events such as this help to increase business for the Airport as well as the businesses around it.
“It just lets the community know the airport is up here, we want to support the community all that we can, we have businesses that come up here and fly parts in and fly out,” Winningham said. “We just want to show the public what kind of going on, what it looks like up here.”
Winningham said that this year’s Cruise-In is the most recent anniversary of the event’s 12-year history. Winningham said that the event typically has 300 to over 500 people come out to the festivities. She said that coming out to the event to look at the vehicles is free to the public.
“Hopefully it will bring in more business from other planes, other states, other communities, to kind of help build this airport up a little bit more and help with other businesses,” Winningham said.
