The Spanish Fork – The Wings and Wheels Festival of Speed will return to Spanish Fork on Saturday, to the delight of connoisseurs of exotic planes and cars.
The event will include a car show, races, static aircraft shows, skydiving, flying acrobatics, helicopter rides, food and beverage vendors and more.
“It’s just a lot of fun, a lot of fun cars to see,” said Trevor Hoyt of Envision, one of the main hosts who participated in the show. “It will be an explosion.”
The event begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday at Spanish Fork Airport and runs all day until about 7 p.m. To maximize the experience, Hoyt recommends “picking and choosing what you want to be there for” by checking out your itinerary for the day.
“It’s something worth trying,” Hoyt said.
The cost of the show is $12 per ticket if you pre-register and $15 per ticket if you buy tickets at the event. Children 10 years old or younger can enter for free.
At this year’s event, there are plans to race “one or two” SUVs against a high-powered aircraft, something Hoyt said people won’t want to miss.
“This is going to be a forever growing event with a lot of expansions,” Hoyt said. “We’re excited to see this thing continue to grow.”
