As part of the Fast Forward Bloomington series, Dronepalooza is a free family-friendly festival that celebrates all things drone.

Drones (also known as Unpiloted Aerial Vehicles or UAVs) are quickly becoming a part of everyday life and are used for anything from wedding photography to missing person investigations to just plain fun! Come to Dronepalooza to see all the different ways that UAVs are being used and give your input on how you would like to see the City of Bloomington use them.
