Is anybody going this year?  We went last year and it was amazing! (other than dealing with six complaining kids for five hours of the airshow before the fireworks...)  Actually the airshow was awesome as well.  The Blue Angels rocked the place.  This year however, the FAA has declined to approve the air box this year, so the Thunderbird's show has been scrapped.  This was just handed down last Friday, two weeks before the show.  Now they are only approved for a two plane flyby...   

 

The real attraction is of course the largest annual fireworks in the hemisphere.  We sat on the riverbank right in front of one of the barge groups.  Here is a video my daughter took on her phone of the last few minutes of the show.  It was set to a musical soundtrack, although it cannot be heard in the video. The artistic part of the show is basically over and the last minute or so is overwhelming skypuke.  I am not saying that as a bad thing, it was the most intense thing I have ever witnessed!

60 tons is what they claim for this year.  That would put a serious strain on my ball mill...  :D

I went a couple years back.   all day in the wet and cold sure put a damper on the fun... clouds were low so the airshow was less than stellar.    The fireworks were great but... we were too close to  the howitzers !!!  man that hurt..    It was fun for me... but with little crying kids it kinda sucked the fun out of it.
