It was a real bummer finding out that the Blue Angels weren't going to be able to make it to the 2011 Hadi Shrine Fest in Evansville. However, the air show wasn't the only reason to attend this year, there are plenty of other events going on, which started on June 9th and will continue on until tomorrow afternoon. Starting at 1:00 today there will be a number of air shows going on for your entertainment. If you live in Evansville then you've heard them practicing the past few days.
-Stearman's (Bi-Plane) 1:00-1:05pm
-US Coast Guard Search and Rescue
-KC-135 Flyover 1:35-1:55pm
-Billy Werth's Grayout Aerobatics
-Red Star and The Dragon 2:15-2:35pm
-B-2 Stealth Bomber 2:50-2:55pm
-F-15 Strike Eagle 3:00-3:20pm
The Stealth Bomber still holds so much mystery and amusement to me, it'll probably be the highlight for me. Although you'll want to be downtown and paying attention, because it'll be here and gone before you know it!
What are the Hadi Shrine Fest Events for Saturday?
Just a reminder that the Fest is absolutely free to the public. However, there is a Bierstube available to the adults which has a $5 admission. If you have any pictures of the event, please send them to me, I'll be happy to get them posted.
