Finally, I can tell my nephew, who has been asking me about this since the beginning of summer, the great news.
Newark Airport Family Day is back for 2014!
We took my nephew the past 2 years and he absolutely loved it.
Here are the details:
October 4, 2014
Parking Area P4
Other than a date, time, and place, there isn’t usually much info posted about the event. I wish United and EWR would publicize this a little more but the crowds are bearable so I won’t complain much.
There are signs directing you to P4 Parking once you get into EWR and after you park, there are shuttles that will bring you to the cargo area where everything is staged.
As far as activities, there is plenty to do for both kids and adult aviation geeks. You are able to walk through United planes and FedEx cargo planes. Port Authority of NJ & NY have their maintenance vehicles on display to check out, as well as the fire department & ambulance corps.
There is also a petting zoo, face painting, free food all day (popcorn, soft pretzels, hot dogs, chips, etc.).
In 2012, United had a BusinessFirst configured 767 on display. Last year, they had a 777. Can’t wait to see what they have for us this year.
