Jun 23, 2022, 11:42 AM | Updated: 2:56 pm

HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — This weekend the Warriors Over The Wasatch Air and Space Show will welcome hundreds of thousands of guests to Davis County. With expected numbers to reach 600,000, on a working military air base, guests will be expected to help keep everyone safe.

Event organizers are asking attendees to avoid transportation delays by taking public transportation and to cooperate by keeping potentially dangerous items outside of the installation. All bags will be inspected and all individuals are subject to search before they will be permitted to enter the base gates.


The base has issued a list of items that are permitted, such as sealed, reusable water bottles, pre-packaged, sealed food, folding camp chairs, strollers (but not wagons) and handheld umbrellas. These items are meant to help people stay comfortable and safe on the ground while the show unfolds in the air above. Sealed ice packs are permitted, but loose ice is not.

Sunscreen is recommended to protect visitors’ skin as are ear protection items like headphones and ear plugs.

Cameras are permitted but camera bags or other small bags like diaper bags will be subject to search.

Medication is permitted but recreational and illegal drugs are not.


Weapons will not be allowed on the military base, regardless of gun or other permits. That includes off-duty law enforcement agents, no matter the permit.

Prohibited items include firearms pocket knives, mace and Tasers or other stun guns, ammunition and explosives — including fireworks. No lighters will be allowed and that includes spark-producing devices like matches.

Individual water bottles are allowed, but cases of water are not and coolers and glass containers are also prohibited. No outside alcohol is allowed. While individual chairs are OK, tents and portable or temporary awnings are not allowed, nor are large lawn chairs.

Personal transportation items are also prohibited, including bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, hoverboards and other similar items.

Excessive storage bags, like duffel bags and backpacks, are not allowed but diaper bags, small purses, camera cases and fanny packs are OK. Pets are prohibited but animals assisting those with disabilities are not.


FrontRunner trains will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and feature an all-day ticket for one person for $5 or $15 for a group pass for up to four people. Trains will run every 30 minutes for peak hours and every hour during mid-day service. Click here for a schedule.
