Victoria is brimming with Events in August! Here are a few featured events that you and the family may enjoy!
VICTORIA'S LARGEST LITTLE AIRSHOW
Victoria's Largest Little Airshow is held every summer at Michell Airpark on the Saanich Peninsula, just outside Victoria, B.C.
R/C pilots from all over B.C. and the U.S.A. will be entertaining you with their scale models, WW1 and WW2 aircraft, giant scale 3-D aerobatics and even TURBINE JETS!
The event draws thousands of spectators and over 30 pilots annually. The Airshow is free to attend and relies solely on public donations. This will be our 17th annual Airshow and to date we have raised over $289,000.00 for local charities. This year every penny raised will be donated to CFAX Santas Anonymous.
If you can tear your eyes away from the flying you can also enjoy our huge static display, raffles, daily 50/50 draws, yummy concession and kids activities.
Bring your lawn chairs and the entire family and spend the day. We're right along the Lochside Trail so you can walk or bike to our location, we have bike racks! FREE PARKING too! Don't miss this exciting event.
