14. Security/Restricted Items
Are there restrictions on what I can bring to the event?
Yes. Alcohol, non-prescription drugs, and weapons of any kind (guns and pocket knives) are strictly forbidden.
For security reasons, we also prohibit coolers of any kind or size at the event except for small coolers used for infant food/drinks or for medications that require refrigeration.
Water/clear liquids in clear containers are allowed; however, carried items must be in small hand-bags only.
Small, space saving, fold-up lawn chairs will be permitted but large and bulky chairs are not. As a point of reference, fold-up chair dimensions around 37”W x 24”D x 40.5”H are about the largest that will be allowed.
What kind of security screenings will I experience?
Everyone attending the event will be required to walk through detectors and all items brought will be thoroughly searched. In order to maximize checkpoint efficiency while maintaining security, we ask all patrons to limit the amount of items brought to the event.
What should I bring to open house?
A water bottle (limit two bottles per person), sunscreen and hearing protection are all recommended items. A free water refill station will be available near the center of the show so guests can stay hydrated.
We also recommend bringing a small, space saving, fold-up lawn chair or blanket if so desired. There are no bleachers for the general public. However, we do remind guests to keep items with them throughout the day and not leave them unattended.
Can I bring my awning or tent?
No. Awning and tents are not allowed to be set up at the event. The 366th Force Support Squadron offers chalets for rent and reserved prior to the open house and air show. However, small personal umbrellas may be utilized.
Will small coolers for lunches be allowed?
No. For security reasons, coolers of any size or shape are not allowed unless they are specifically needed for medications that require refrigeration or to hold infant food/beverages. Under those two approved situations, only small coolers will be allowed.
This does not prevent anyone from bringing water/clear liquids in clear plastic bottles. Please be aware that there will be a water station with free water available to everyone attending the event. There will also be many different food vendors selling a variety of foods and drinks.
Can we bring food and water?
Yes. Water/clear liquids in clear containers are permitted; however, items hand carried must be in small bags and will be searched at the security entrances.
Other options include the free water that will be available at multiple locations throughout the event. A variety of food, drinks and souvenirs will also be available through multiple vendors located throughout the event area.
