The event, which is one of the most anticipated and attended events of the year, features everything from terminal tours and feature exhibits, to food and fun for the whole family.
It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at the Frontiers of Flight Museum, located at 6911 Lemmon Ave. in Dallas.
