As an attendee at last Saturday's air show at the Angelina County Airport, I am compelled to offer congratulations to the LCVB, and all those involved in staging this event. It was an outstanding event and something that all, young and old, could enjoy. It is my hope that this will become a regular event for our area, and continue to bring in top notch performers like Randy Ball and Skip Stewart. Many of the vendors I spoke to at the show said they were overwhelmed by the response, especially the food service vendors. Future plans for this event should include additional solicitation of food service vendors. Many families with children were seen leaving well before the show ended, simply because they could not get any refreshments for their kids. No doubt future vendors will have more confidence in an adequate attendance and prepare accordingly.
All in all, it was a “Re-e-ally big shew”! as Ed Sullivan used to say.
Congrats to all involved!
