Wright State partnered with some of the Miami Valley’s leading aviation and community organizations to host a new festival dedicated to flight.
The Festival of Flight celebrated aviation and highlighted the importance of the Miami Valley’s aviation heritage on the grounds of the Wright State University Nutter Center during Homecoming Week.
Attendees, who included alumni, friends and families, enjoyed aviation-related educational experiences; flight-themed food and beverages, sports; and entertainment, including performances by local bands; a dedicated area with activities for children; and a haunted trail.
“We have all kinds of things going on to celebrate the fall and our heritage with aviation and celebrate Homecoming,” said Eric Corbitt, Student Union and Campus Recreation director.
Wright State’s Homecoming Week kicked off on Sept. 30 with students participated in numerous events, which included a kickoff party, annual Chili Cook-Off and Bonfire, Cardboard Boat Race, Casino Night and Trivia Night.
“We have a bunch of people celebrating that Raider spirit that we all have,” said Ivan Mallett, president of Wright State Student Government Association.
