WARNER ROBINS -- The Museum of Aviation hosts a fall festival Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In its second year, the festival is trying to grow and has added new activities.

A boot camp obstacle course will take place near the fence.

The inflatable 30-foot by 80-foot long course will feature a rope climbing challenge as well as other tests for adults and older children.

There will also be a bounce house for younger children and big glove boxing where children can don large plastic gloves and pretend to box.

Activities are a flat $10 fee for a wrist band.

Included are horse rides and a hay ride that circles the perimeter of the museum while telling the stories of some of the outside aircraft.

A costume contest for children ages 1-9 will start at 2 p.m. Prizes for the contest are gift certificates.

“We’re just trying to grow it this year,” said museum finance director Jenny Maas, who is also heading the Nevermore Hills Haunted Trail adjacent to the museum.

A rocket launch will take place at 1 p.m. in the amphitheater.

There will be a pumpkin carving contest throughout the day. Participants can bring their own carved pumpkin or buy a pumpkin for $5 at the museum and carve it on site.

A raffle for a Nexus tablet will be held.

Maas hopes the event draws about 1,000 people.
