A Good Time for a Good Cause at Pan-O-Prog

Every year at Pan-O-Prog, the Lakeville Lions sponsor several popular events, including The Fly-In Breakfast and Beer, Brats & Bingo. These events raise thousands of dollars that are given back to people and projects in need within the Lakeville community.

 

It’s “Plane” Fun at the Fly-In Breakfast

The Fly-In Breakfast is not your ordinary morning meal! This unique event combines a delicious breakfast with the thrill of watching aircraft flying in and out of the airport. A beloved part of Pan-O-Prog, the fly-in breakfast takes place at a hangar in Lakeville’s Airlake Airport on Sunday morning.

 

Each year, pilots from near and far fly in to this event to showcase their aircraft, offering attendees a rare up-close look at a variety of planes. From vintage classics to modern marvels and homebuilt creations, the assortment of aircraft on display never fails to impress. This kid-friendly event gives little ones the opportunity to explore select on-display airplanes from inside the cockpit.

 

Weather permitting, attendees can expect an appearance of the Minnesota Commemorative Air Force (CAF) “Warbirds”. The CAF will fly in the pride of the fleet, a WWII era North American B-25J bomber, “Miss Mitchell.” Additionally, the Metropolitan Airport Commission (MAC) will be hosting a “Paint the Plow” event during breakfast, and will also have the airport’s heavy equipment on display.

 

The event starts at 7:30 am, with free admission and parking for spectators. The paid breakfast includes pancakes, eggs, ham links, pastries, milk, orange juice, and fresh brewed coffee.

 

Three Favorite Past Times in One Night

One of the most anticipated events of Pan-O-Prog is Lions’ Beer, Brats & Bingo on Thursday night. Thousands of people gather on the lawn of the Lakeville Art Center for a night of boisterous fun that includes bingo, delicious foods, refreshing drinks and live music. Started in 1978 by the Lions Club, this community fundraiser is an opportunity to reunite with old friends and make new acquaintances.

 

Under the big tent, rows of tables fill with eager bingo participants, from seasoned enthusiasts to first-timers hoping to win big. With a large prize pool, everyone has a chance to win in this epic game of bingo! This is a popular event with options for reserved seating to ensure you won’t miss a second of the fun.

 

The Lions’ Beer Garden offers a variety of domestic and craft beers, as well as wine and a full bar. When hunger strikes, you can find an array of delicious options at the food tent, including brats, pulled pork carnitas, burgers, turkey burgers, hot dogs, chips, desserts, water, and sodas.

 

If bingo’s not your style, the North Side Music Stage is the place to be. Featuring local artists and a full bar, it’s the perfect gathering spot when waiting for bingo-playing friends or taking a break from the action.
