Add Some High-Flying Adventure To Your Central Florida Vacation
It’s no secret that anytime is a great time to visit Polk County; however, travelers in-the-know understand that the month of April brings with it a little something extra for visitors on a Central Florida vacation – the SUN ’n FUN International Fly-In & Expo.
Held this year in Lakeland from April 1-6, 2014, this annual gala marks Polk County’s largest event of the year (as well as the second largest air show in the U.S.). Commemorating its 40th year in 2014, this year’s SUN ’n FUN International Fly-In & Expo will transform the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport into North America’s most active airport. With an anticipated attendance of more than 200,000 guests from around the world, it’s easy to see why the Fly-In is THE place to be the first week in April.
Schedule Of Events For 2014’s Fly-In Festivities
