It's airport day! If you love small planes and are curious about how airports operate stop by the Palo Alto Airport, 1925 Embarcadero Rd., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Palo Alto Airport Association (PAAA) and the City of Palo Alto invite the community to see its airport up close including touring the control tower (barring last minute security concerns—review FAA Control Tower tour restrictions in advance). There will be educational exhibits, food vendors, facility tours, aircraft-oriented items for sale and fun diversions for the kids, including FREE flights for kids 8-17 years of age throughout the day. Drop by this fun and interesting annual event!
