On September 7th, Red Bull Flugtag makes its highly anticipated return to Saint Paul at Harriet Island Park!
Location: Harriet Island
Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
200 Dr Justus Ohage Blvd , Saint Paul, Minnesota
Hundreds of teams apply for a coveted spot with only 50 of the highest quality teams being selected to participate. Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 30 foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder, or more often, plunging into the waters below. Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls and even a giant hamburger to grace the Red Bull Flugtag flight decks! Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1992, more than 150 Red Bull Flugtags have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event.
Gates open at 10:30 a.m.
