Sounds like this event is moving forward with a drive-in format:
Tri-City Water Follies Drive-In Air Show is a Go for September 4-6!

Working in partnership with Tri-Cities leadership and the Benton Franklin Health District, the Tri-City Water Follies Association has designed a plan for a drive-in air show that meets the guidelines for the phased reopening as outlined in the Governor’s “Safe Start” plan.

“We were delighted to see drive-in movies open up the first of August,” said Kathy Powell, event director. “It revitalized our efforts for a drive-in air show. We were offered amazing military jet teams and had to find a safe way to make it work.”

The performer line-up includes the United States Navy EA-18G Growler, United States Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II and F-35 Lightening II, as well as a few civilian aircraft.

Not official yet, but it looks the F-16 Viper Demo Team will be on hand with the A-10 and F-35A Demo Teams.
