Annual Memorial Day Flower Drop & Air Fair

Come out to the Palm Springs Air Museum for their Memorial Day Flower Drop & Air Fair. Join the museum as they drop 3,000 red and white carnations from a B-25 Mitchell bomber to commemorate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Activities for this event include flight exhibitions throughout, special program, music, children’s activities, and food vendors. A Beer Garden area will also be available for those age 21 and over. Visitors may take home a carnation after the drop, and are encouraged to bring a portable chair, and to carpool as the parking lots quickly fill up.
