  • December 6th – Annual Ketchum Christmas Parade

July 4: Fly-in-Event “War Birds”

Good 2022 turnout of locals, Lake Visitors, and Civil Air Patrol Cadets. Spectators watched the Warbirds land around 5:00, viewed aircraft on the ramp, and watched the 7:00 takeoff for Duck Creek Flyover.

A P-51 Mustang and B-25 Mitchell were a nice addition to the Flyover. The Mustang offered rides on July 3rd and 4th.
