Buzz Aldrin will be a special guest for the Run to the Moon and the Armstrong Air and Space Museum during this year’s Summer Moon Festival.
Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the moon, will arrive July 21. On July 22, he will be a special guest at the Run to the Moon, will visit Neil Armstrong’s boyhood home and participate in a special event at the museum in the afternoon. He departs Wapakoneta on July 23.
“He’s got a very busy schedule,” said Run director Amy Kentner. “We’ve been working on this for two years.”
Kentner hopes the visit will be special for Aldrin as well, especially due to the return of another special guest.
