The City of Columbus and Columbus Municipal Airport have announced that the Canadian Forces Snowbirds flight demonstration team will be headlining the “Birds & Brews” event on September 18th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

City officials say Birds & Brews will replace Columbus Aviation Day for 2019, which is traditionally held in June. Organizers say this will be the first time the Canadian Forces Snowbirds have ever been in central Indiana. This event is free and the public is invited to attend.

In addition to the Snowbirds, Birds & Brews will also offer a beer garden. In celebration of this event, Zwanzigz Brewery of Columbus will be creating a one-of-a-kind Canadian brew only available at the event.

There are also scheduled to be food vendors, a U.S. military flight demonstration and parachute jump, children’s educational activities and a Hot Air Balloon Glow.
