There is much more to Spruce Creek than flying!
The Annual Wings & Wheels Day is a celebration of Spruce Creek’s love of cars, motorcycles, airplanes and the community. The many activities devoted to the children of the community include the Annual Halloween Party, the Easter Egg Hunt, Fourth of July picnic, the Christmas Parade (Big kids like that one, too.) and, of course, the playground.
