Paragliding Landing Zone, Tiger Mountain, Issaquah
We are partnering with the Downtown Issaquah Association, Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, Lake Washington Partners and Seattle Paragliding to launch the first ever Fantastic Fly-In, a paraglider festival of floats and costumes.
Fantastic Fly-In will be fashioned after the 40 year old Coupe Icare, the free flight festival that marks the end of the European summer flying season held each year in the alpine village of St Hilaire du Touvet in France, where costumed paragliders and spectators hold demonstrations that are spectacular to watch.
Want to watch? Gather in the Paragliding Landing Zone at the Chirico Trailhead along Issaquah Hobart Road on Tiger Mountain. There will be food trucks on site, along with a beer garden. Prime viewing time is estimated to be around 5 pm.
Parking will be available at the Issaquah Community Center at 301 Rainier Blvd South in downtown Issaquah or at Issaquah Christian Church 10328 Issaquah-Hobart Rd SE a half mile north of the Paragliding Landing Zone.
A free trolley will bring you to and from both these parking areas and the Paragliding Landing Zone area between 1 and 8 pm.
