Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Hard to think about sunny and 70-today, but that is what planners of this summer's upcoming air show are hoping for.
Believe it or not, Fargo has been hosting air shows since the 1940's. WDAY even covered them live on radio.
This year's Fargo Air Sho is set for August 13th and 14th at Hector Airport. The Blue Angels are once again coming for the show.
It is also the summer for the Centennial of Naval Aviation across the country, and the Navy has selected the Fargo Air Sho as one of its select sites for the celebration.
Besides the Blue Angels, there are several aerobatic teams and military planes coming to Fargo for the show. The angels get 400-applications a year for appearances, but year after year, the Blues select Fargo and even give our Air Sho priority when booking dates.
Organizers hope to attract between 30 and 40-thousand people at the August event.
