Valley Day and Fall Flying Fest

The Chester County G.O. Carlson Airport hosted the 13th Annual Valley Day and Fall Flying Fest as a cooperative effort between the Airport and where it resides, Valley Township. The days festivities included the Valley Police Department, Westwood Fire Company, Sadsburyville Fire Company, moon bounces, food, helicopters, airplanes, face painting, monster truck and much more!

The Kennett Fire Company smoke house was a huge hit to teach fire prevention to the youth. Firefighters spent the day taking kids through the house and teaching them about fire safety and how to escape a house full of smoke. In conjunction with this event, the next day began National Fire Prevention week which focuses this year on having 2 escape plans.

Many hours of hard work was put in by numerous volunteers to make this event successful. Thank you to the Valley Township Parks and Recreation Committee and it's volunteers for organizing year after year such a great event for the community.
