Airshow of the Cascades – Sky High Thrills for the Family

For more than 20 years, Madras has been home to one of the more unsung family events in the region, the Airshow of the Cascades. It’s Oregon’s second largest air show, giving people a chance to get up close and personal to aviation history both on the ground and in the air. You’ll see vintage and high tech aircraft doing stunts and flying through a wall of fire.

The event often features a classic car show, activities for the kids, fireworks show on Friday night, local country music favorites, “Countryfied” both nights as well as a performance from the Metal Mulisha motorcycle stunt crew!

You can get all the details on the airshow website.
