2018 Niagara Falls Sky Fest

5 minutes read Jun 18,2018
2018 Niagara Falls Sky Fest

Skydiving is coming to Sherkston Shores Beach Resort & Campground! On Thursday July 5, visit Wyldewood Beach from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. as we commemorate the first Canadian parachute jump at the 2018 Niagara Falls Sky Fest. This annual event celebrates the Niagara region's rich aviation history.

Sky Fest is typically held at Crystal Beach in Fort Erie, Ontario, but due to construction on the beach, the spot wasn't a practical choice this year. So for 2018, we've picked up the mantle to host this fun-filled event at Sherkston Shores in order to pay homage to Frank Ellis, who made the first Canadian parachute jump 99 years ago in 1919.

This free event is open to the public, and the festivities will be held at Wyldwood Beach, situated alongside Lake Erie; no access to the resort amenities or facilities will be available to the public. Homeowners and campers at Sherkston Shores are also welcome to join in the fun at the Sky Fest too! Traffic flow and parking will be coordinated and monitored by the security team here at Sherkston Shores.
