Go Wheels Up! Texas at San Marcos Regional Airport

Thursday, May 2, 2019

The San Marcos Regional Airport is hosting Cory Morrow’s Go Wheels Up! Texas- a high-energy, family-friendly celebration of music, automobiles, airplanes and Texas cuisine being held Friday, May 3- Sunday, May 5.

The three-hour airshow, beginning Saturday morning, features Red Bull Air Race world champion Kirby Chambliss and the Red Bull Air Force wingsuit jumpers. Acrobatics and performances are scheduled throughout the weekend. 

Aircrafts on display include P-51 Mustangs, B-17 Bombers, a MIG Jet, and dozens of classic war birds. Throughout the weekend, attendees will be able to fly state-of-the-art flight simulators, and limited airplane and helicopter rides will be available.

At the car show, onlookers can see 200 breathtaking examples of automotive engineering, from classic American muscle to exotic Italian street machines. A rally course and parade route will enable attendees to see and hear these works of art in motion.

Numerous activities for children, and fantastic food that highlights local vendors and stalwart Texas culinary traditions will be featured throughout the weekend.

The weekend’s musical performers include Texas musical icon Cory Morrow, with an all-star cast including rock-legend Bret Michaels, Kevin Fowler, Dale Watson, Radney Foster, Drew Womack, Terri Hendrix and Lloyd Maines.  The Sunday Morning Gospel Brunch is led by Josh Weathers, and Cinco de Mayo headliners Los Texmaniacs wrap up the entertainment on Sunday afternoon. 

Go Wheels Up! is poised to become a Central Texas tradition for years to come. A portion of the weekend’s proceeds will benefit the Greater San Marcos Youth Council, The San Marcos Education Foundation, Own Your Own Universe and the Commemorative Air Force. 

Message boards are positioned on Interstate 35 and Highway 21 to let drivers know to expect delays Friday and Saturday during the event.
