  • Thousands are expected to turn out for the 32nd Annual Simsbury Fly-In, Car Show and Food Truck Festival Sunday.

    The event is part air show, part car show, and this year organizers have added a food truck festival.

    Attendees can expect to see planes old and new on display. This year, there are 750 vintage airplanes and cars.

    There are also free seminars, flying demonstrations, a LifeStar helicopter and radio control model aerobatics to entertain the family.

    The event started more than 30 years ago as a fundraiser for the Simsbury airport. It’s attracted people from all over Connecticut and even out of state.

    Some have been inspired to take up flying and buy or build their own planes.

    Admission to the event is free, but donations are appreciated. Parking is available for $10.
