LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bowmanfest is about to fly back into Louisville, and on Tuesday, organizers were putting together a quick preview.
WDRB's Jailen Leavell got to take flight aboard one of four aircraft during Tuesday's practice flights.
Bowmanfest celebrates more than 100 years at one of America's longest-running commercial airports: Bowman Field.
The festival is returning after two years of being canceled due to COVID-19. Organizers said they are expecting more that 20,000 spectators.
"Having access to aviation and seeing it and feeling it is a big deal, so we called some friends and got our planes together," said Pat Macdonald, the organizer of the festival.
It's set for Oct. 1-2.
The Kentucky Air National Guard Parachute Team, weather permitting, will assist in the opening ceremony of the event on Saturday, Oct. 1.
There will be an aerobatic airshow twice a day, plus static airplane and helicopter displays.
Airplane and helicopter rides will also be available, along with a vintage car show, historic military vehicles, food trucks, a cash bar and bounce houses.
Admission is $20 per person. Veterans get in free.
