BREMERTON — Where else but the Bremerton Blackberry Festival can you let the kids eat pie, climb a wall, bounce in a bouncy house, and ride in a helicopter or airplane all in the same day?

The Blackberry Festival Fly-In is Sept. 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bremerton National Airport. Shuttle service will be provided between downtown and the airport.

The Northwest BeechBoys formation demonstration team will delight festival goers with a special flight formation, visible downtown, at 12:10 p.m.
