Tri-Cities Airshow Thrills Spectators over Labor Day Weekend [Photos]
Talk about an amazing weekend in the Tri-Cities. If you looked to the skies, I'm sure you heard and saw glimpses of some amazing aircraft. If you were in Columbia Park in Kennewick and on the banks of Wade Park in Pasco, you even got a better view.
We didn't get any boat races this year due to COVID-19 but that doesn't mean the community went without a spectacular event. Tri-City Water Follies jumped into action and with the help of amazing sponsors was able to put on three amazing days of the first-ever "Over The Air Drive-In Show".
The weekend line up included the United States Navy EA-18G Growler, United States Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II, and F-35 Lightning II, as well as a few civilian aircraft.
According to a press release from the Water Follies talked about the event:
“We are thrilled to provide a much-needed distraction for our community,” said Colin Hastings, President, Tri-City Water Follies. “This will be a once in a lifetime air show in our region. This wouldn’t have happened without the support of our area leaders and the hard work of the Water Follies volunteers.”
It was an amazing weekend and a lot of people got some great shots of aircraft in the sky, here are a few pictures that show how amazing the show was for the Tri-Cities.
