Period clothing

10 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1p.m. to 4 p.m.
Come celebrate Canadian aviation as they did 110 years ago by dressing up in your best! Get your photo with the Silver Dart wearing period clothing graciously provided by Vintage Stock Theatre volunteers. Share it with your friends for your chance to win!

Silver Dart model

10 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1p.m. to 4 p.m.
Strap yourself into our Silver Dart model and go for a spin. If you thought our little biplanes were neat, you will be blown away by this. (Activity aimed for small children) 

Printmaking workshop

Using ink, paper and a roller, make your own prints depicting great moments in Canadian aviation history—including the February 23, 1909 flight of the A.E.A. Silver Dart at Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Bits and Pieces
