We have begun our 2020 Social Media Campaign!
Also, we have added the AFTERSHOCK Jet Fire Truck. It'll be driven by Neal Darnell.

We have most of our lineup solidified but will be announcing them in a unique way this year. Stay tuned!

Besides the USAF Thunderbirds, we are working on even more military assets this year. We are looking at adding static displays back to the event this year, some modern military and some warbird. We're also coordinating with squadrons to have some assets in the air. It all depends on who is available over the holiday weekend.

Yes, we are keeping an eye on things as they unfold. We plan to update that message on the website at least every Monday so people know it is coming each week. We are hopeful that we can press forward with the event. We will be holding meetings both via phone and internet to continue to plan to the event. We have a lot of excited things yet to announce.

On Facebook two weeks ago, we made the statement that we were pressing forward with planning and we will be posting both memories and announcements every weekday around Mid-Day to keep good news going during all of this. Hope everyone is staying safe.
