You can't use 36th Street nor Growden Road due to construction. See:

Anyhow, the Lackland Air Fest is this weekend (6-7 November), more info can be found on the official web site; but in a nutshell...



And just to note...



Otherwise, go and have some fun!

Cheers! M2

p.s. Be careful when driving anywhere near the base either during practice or while the actual show is going on! There are a lot of distracted drivers trying to watch the cool airplanes and not the road , so take extra care!
How about baby strollers?????

Based on previous experiences, there are no restrictions on baby strollers...

Just be aware that some of the aerial demonstrations are very loud and may frighten small children!

Cheers! M2

Always had great luck coming in on 36th street but that's not an option this year. General McMullen off of 90 might be another way in.
