WATERTOWN, S.D.–It’s a big weekend at Watertown Regional Airport as two separate events are being held.

Today (Friday), a grand opening will be held at 3:00 p.m. There will be a water cannon for the arrival of a Denver Air Connection jet.

That’ll be followed by an aerial ribbon-cutting around 3:30 with a local crop duster.

Later in the afternoon, there will be a fundraiser flight…

The airport’s office specialist, Angie Yahne, says the flight has raised $30,000 for LATC students, thanks in large part to Denver Air…

On Saturday from 10 to 4, there will be another event at the airport called Kites, Flights and Bites. There will be games, food, live music and airplane rides.
