PORTAGE, Mich. (WOTV) Air Zoo is honoring heroes with a special event. Heroes Day is a day for families to learn more about the heroes we interact with every day. Kids can participate in hands-on events to understand how to become a hero in their own lives.

The family-friendly event will include educational shows, musical entertainment, vehicles on display for children to touch, and visits from neighborhood heroes like servicemen/women, police officers, service dogs, firefighters, teachers, and more. There will be a family picnic from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with food, lawn games, and entertainment. The grand finale of the day will be the Talons Out Honor Flight parade of 80 World War II veterans around 8:30 p.m.

Heroes Day is Saturday, September 26. Indoor activities are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Outdoor activities (weather permitting) are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., including the family picnic and parade. Outdoor activities are free. Indoor activities are included with paid admission.
