Five fun things to do this weekend; Oct. 4-6

Vero Beach Air show- Up, Up, and Away!  The Air Show returns after a 16-year hiatus and is expected to draw large crowds of aviation enthusiasts this weekend.  The line-up includes the "GEICO Skytypers," who will fly vintage WWII war birds and will perform for the first time at the Vero Beach airport (3400 Cherokee Dr., Vero Beach). The GEICO Skytypers air show team fly six WWII-vintage aircraft, coming from all directions and filling the sky to provide spectators a unique viewing experience while showcasing the tactics and maneuvers utilized in training during WWII. Their inaugural appearance in Vero Beach will be the first time people from the area can view the GEICO Skytypers' giant billboards in the sky. During skytyping missions the pilots fly 250 feet apart in a wide "line-abreast" formation.  The team "types" dot-matrix-style messages that are approximately 1,000 feet tall and can be viewed from up to 15 miles in any direction and span up to eight miles in length.  Each skytyped letter is generated in approximately four seconds, which is 17 times faster than the more traditional skywriting method. And for those who want to "lay-low," there will be a concession stand, a car show, and moon bounces for kids. $16;  Saturday & Sunday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
 
 
West Palm Beach GreenMarket- What comes around every October? You guessed it!

As patrons warily wander through 14,000 square feet of dark twists and turns, hearing screams and other terrifying noises, they will enter themed-scare rooms. Lurking inside are more than 40 actors eager to put fear in everyone's step, leading those who dare enter screaming towards an exit, or a claustrophobic chamber that only leads to more haunted rooms. The family owned and run attraction features 40+ actors, professional special effects makeup artists, state of the art special effects, sounds and smells to help make the experience as real as possible. Enigma Haunt caters to all ages although it may be too intense for children under 12. $20; Friday - Sunday 7:30 p.m.
