About Flight Days

Eagle’s signature summertime event, Flight Days, is BACK! This year’s theme, “Sky’s the Limit!” will take us to spectacular heights. Join us in Town Park to enjoy fun for the whole family!

Friday Family Fun Night kicks off the weekend with silent disco, glow-in-the-dark crafts, giant yard games, and popcorn & a movie.

On Saturday, Sky’s the Limit! The splash of color fun run will end in time for the parade on Broadway. The day’s events includes a kid zone, gravity games, axe throwing, live music and so much more!

Flight Days FAQs:

Q: Is Flight Days an airshow?
A: No.
Q: Why is it called Flight Days?
A: In 1921 the County Seat was “stolen” from Red Cliff and moved to Eagle.  The Town has been celebrating the history and relocation ever since.
