Air Affaire draws a crowd for sixth event

Wildfire smoke and chilly temperatures may have kept some away, but last weekend’s sixth-annual Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire and Sequim Valley Fly-In still drew quite a crowd.

Air Affaire co-organizer Emily Westcott said the event, held Aug. 25-26 at Sequim Valley Airport, drew about 1,500 people on both days plus another 100 for the car show and 100 in vendors and staffers.

“Considering the weather, it went pretty well,” Westcott said.

Some highlights, Westcott said, were wing walkers Mike and Marilyn Mason of The West Coast Spin Doctors drawing attention of Saturday’s crowd while the Blackjack Squadron based out of Arlington bringing in a dozen planes on Sunday.

The Air Affaire began in 2013 as a joint celebration for the City of Sequim’s centennial and the airport’s 30th anniversary.
