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.
