Glenn H. Curtiss Museum’s Seaplane Homecoming again will join forces with the Hammondsport’s Classic and Exotic Car Show to form this year’s “Wings and Wheels in Hammondsport” event.

During the event, Sept. 15 and Sept. 16, 2018, attendees will see demonstrations of seaplanes and they can meet the pilots. Seaplane activities begin at 10:00 a.m. at Depot Park on the Hammondsport lakefront. In addition to various seaplanes landing and taking off at the lakefront, there will be food and souvenir vendors.
Beginning at 1:00 p.m., visiting pilots will take part in a “Salute to Glenn Curtiss” seaplane parade around Keuka Lake, extending their southern loop directly over the Curtiss gravesite in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
 
The car show will feature classic and exotic cars of all types, including Ferraris, vintage autos from the 1940s and 1950s, muscle cars and more.
The Wings and Wheels in Hammondsport event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. It is free to the public. Events attendees also are encouraged to visit area wineries, craft brewers, restaurants and shops in the village.
