Airdrie poised on the edge of greatness
We are pleased to hear Airdrie City council made the decision to give the organizers of the Airdrie Regional Air Show nearly $65,000 in gift-in-kind support to put towards the 2013 show.
The biannual show will take place next year on July 13 and 14 at the Airdrie Airport and will feature the Canadian Forces Snowbirds
The 2013 demonstration will be the third Airdrie Regional Air Show and organizers have been busy planning new acts and ideas to bring to their spectators.
Right from the get-go, Airdrie has put on a great show, which has garnered plenty of interest.
In 2011, 27,000 spectators came out for the two-day show. This year organizers are hoping to increase that number.
With the City, neighbouring municipalities and local businesses on board, the 2011 show couldnít help but be a resounding success.
We are looking forward to more cooperation, fresh ideas and even more spectators next year.
It bodes well for the future of Airdrie, which in the recent past has hosted a number of large events, such as the 55 Plus Summer Games in 2009.
And with the promise of the 2014 Alberta Summer Games, which is expected to attract 3,000 athletes, along with numerous coaches and families, Airdrie is poised to make a positive name for itself as a destination.
Despite its many accomplishments, we donít think our city has reached its full potential and is poised to become something even better.
Maybe weíre biased, but we couldnít be more proud.
