    I thought that things flowed better this year. I splurged the extra $5.00 for preferred parking which was worth it as they seemed to make people park further away this year. They were running shuttle buses. We waited about 15 minutes after the show ended to leave, there were many very long lines waiting to get on a bus. Luckily, we only had a short walk to our car and hit zero traffic leaving, which was shocking. the food lines were very long, to the point that it wasn't worth waiting. The show itself was very good, the F18 was set to land, however, they announced that he had a lot of fuel left, so he did a "bolter" and then did several more high speed passes, which will always be a welcomed surprise. I only went on Saturday, so I can't comment on Sunday. The weather started off cool but got warmer as the day progressed, mostly sunny all day.

    I too attended Saturday's show. I agree with Joe, things were better organized this year. Preferred parking is the way to go. Quick exit, no traffic. Program advertises next years show on Sept 16 & 17.

    A few shots from Saturday's show

    Thanks guys!! Great pictures!! I did read some people complaining about the VIP section like the $$ and they ran out of food, etc. They are already advertising for next year but not sure who the headliners will be as both the Angels and TBirds are scheduled elsewhere that weekend!!
