Small-airplane enthusiasts will converge Friday at the annual Concrete Old-Fashioned Fly-in.

The event, which runs through Sunday at Mears Field, 7879 S. Superior Ave., attracts dozens of single-engine propeller planes and their owners for a weekend of talking shop, demonstrations and awards.

Attendees can bring their vintage aircraft for judging by event organizers.

The event is also host to a vintage car show.

Fire District 10 will host a pancake breakfast fundraiser from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the cafeteria of nearby Concrete High School. All proceeds will benefit the school’s scholarship fund.

Food trucks and live bluegrass music will be present all day Saturday.
