Front-row seats to fun at fly-in

There was plenty of fun to be had Saturday as another large crowd was on hand at the Daniel DePonti Memorial Airport in Forest Lake for the 12th annual Forest Lake Fly-in. A total of 187 kids ages 8 to 17 got their first air experience with free airplane rides under the Young Eagles program. Violet Swanson-Peet, 6, of Columbus, put on her pilot’s cap just for the day.
