Sun 'n Fun 2012
03.27.12 - 04.01.12
We're often asked "what is SUN 'n FUN"? That's not an easy question to answer, because the truth is, it depends on who you ask. Like the old proverb about the blind men who offered widely different descriptions of an elephant, it depends on how you experience it!
Most people refer to us as a "fly-in" and that's certainly an important component, as Lakeland Linder Regional Airport becomes the busiest airport in the world during our event, with over 40,000 recorded aircraft movements! That's busier than Atlanta or Chicago!
We are also host to one of the largest aviation tradeshow/conventions in the world with more than 500 commercial exhibitors showcasing the newest products in the industry. From multi-million dollar aircraft to aviation art and avionics, our vendors have something for just about everyone. Plus, our education corridor is filled with more than 400 hands-on workshops and forums, all taking place during the six-day event known around the world as "SUN 'n FUN".
And, don't forget the daily airshow, Friday "night" airshow, Saturday morning balloon race, kids activities, aviation lectures at the Florida Air Musuem, and numerous food vendors and daily entertainment that goes well into the evening. Thousands of guests who just can't get enough SUN 'n FUN join us in the on-site campground, to awaken every day to the seductive sound of aircraft engines.
