If you know anything about Put-in-Bay Ohio, you probably know that it’s a popular Lake Erie weekend getaway. People drive to Port Clinton or Sandusky from all over the Midwest and hop onto a Put in Bay ferry like the Jet Express to get across the lake for a weekend of fun. But, Put-in-Bay and the Lake Erie islands also have a growing pilot population.
Put-in-Bay is also full of residents who are enthusiastic about antique cars. These two communities join together for a spectacular afternoon in August. On this Sunday, vintage automobile fans and aviation enthusiasts get together at the Annual 3W2 Fly-in at the Put-in-Bay Airport! Put-in-Bay has a famous Antique Car Parade every Sunday during the summer. This time it changes it’s closing destination to the airport. This way it can join up with the fly-in for a pig roast you won’t soon forget! If you love planes or antique vehicles, join us for this one as long as the Put in Bay weather permits!
