The winds were strong and chilly, but that was the only thing that could put a damper on Wings Wheels & Keels last Saturday, and only because it was possible that it would keep even more small planes from attending the event. People roamed Hummel Air Field in Topping looking at all sorts of modes of transportation, from lawn mowers to helicopters.

Many people wore windbreakers and hoodies, but just as many wore shorts, as they wandered among antique cars, boats, and planes. The clear blue skies and bright sun set up a perfect day. The smell of food from the food vendors wafted across the crowd, as the squeal of kids echoed from the all-day children’s’ carnival which included multiple bouncy houses and a mechanical bull.
