In recent years, Branson RecPlex hosted the festival but it will be moved to the Taney County Airport this year. The new location will offer easier access for the ever-growing crowds, and the later event date, October 23-25, 2015, will allow for more enjoyable, cooler temperatures.

Participants will also get the chance to be part of the circus, the Flying Circus that is! Take a ride with one of the experienced pilots in an ultralight. You will have the ride of a lifetime, doing stunts mid-air.

A charity dog walk, untethered balloon rides and helicopter rides are also planned.
