Picnic-n-Planes

When: Wed., May 25, 11 a.m. 2011

Spring-fed ponds, a flowering meadow, some Gruyère and flatbread and a screaming Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon Block 52: You could only be at the Western Museum of Mining and Industry (225 North Gate Blvd., wmmi.org), and it could only be Picnic-n-Planes. For a suggested parking donation of $5, you can bring a picnic lunch, grab some ground, and watch the Thunderbirds soar for Air Force Academy graduation. The air show is scheduled for somewhere around 12:30, which leaves you a chance to join a tour of the WMMI either before lunch (at 10 a.m.) or after (at 1 p.m.). Its current exhibit, A Facet of Coal, comes down May 30. — Kirk Woundy

Price: $5
