It's time for the annual Lake of the Ozarks Air Show, and your Lake of the Ozarks Culligan Man has all of the exciting details for you. This is a family fun event full of non-stop action in the sky, and quite a bit on the ground too.

Awesome Air Show Acts

Saturday, September 10, 2016, the Camdenton Memorial Lake Regional Airport will be home to this highly anticipated air show. There will be seating available, but blankets and lawn chairs are highly recommended. You will want to pick your spot, settle in, and get comfortable for a day full of non-stop action that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Here is some of the scheduled entertainment.

  • Ping Pong Ball Drop
One of the most popular events for the kids is the annual Ping Pong Ball Drop. The airfield will be covered in ping pong balls after they are dropped from an airplane overhead. The children then race to collect as many specially marked balls as they can to be returned for prizes.
