Airplanes and Art: A day of adventure in Cresco

Plan for a day of fun, celebrating 41 years of the Fly-in Breakfast at the Cresco Airport, along with the 62nd Annual Cresco Fine Arts Show at Beadle Park Sunday, Aug. 6, in Cresco. 

Tickets for the Fly-In Breakfast are available in advance at the Cresco and Howard County Chamber, at CUSB and Cresco Bank and Trust, or at the door. 

The Fly-in Breakfast will be held at Ellen Church Field (named for America’s first stewardess) at the airport Sunday, Aug. 6, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., for all-you-can-eat omelets, pancakes and beverages. Airplanes will be on display and airplane rides will be available. 

Make a day of your visit and check out the Cresco Fine Arts Show, a juried show with awards for participants. The art show will be in Beadle Park from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Cresco Fine Arts Council is focused on promoting artists as well as providing opportunities for people of all ages to explore the artistic creativity we all possess. With a reputation for being one of the longest running, continuous art shows in Iowa, there will be some great art, entertainment, many activities for the family, food and a lot of fun.
