The California Capital Airshow (scroll down for information on winning tickets) will kick off its 10-year anniversary with a special nighttime performance, Airshow After Dark, at Sacramento’s Mather Airport on Oct. 2, 2015.
“As the sun sets on Friday, October 2, the skies over Mather Airport will ignite with a feast for the senses as thrilling jets and aerobatics performers light up the sky with streaming flares, showers of colorful bursts from their wings and thundering pyrotechnics. These phenomenal performances will be skillfully choreographed to awesome concert quality music with a fiery grand finale – it’s nothing like the Sacramento region has ever seen or heard before!”
If you can’t make it to the nighttime event, don’t worry. This year’s daytime shows, Oct. 3 – 4, will be just as exciting. Spectators will witness military jet demonstrations, USAF Thunderbirds, Canadian Forces Snowbirds, as well as aerobatics, pyrotechnics, barnstorming and plenty of ground entertainment, music, food and exhibits. Got kids? There will be plenty to keep kids of all ages busy, as well. Teens can stop by the Launch Pad to experience interactive games and demonstrations as they learn more about the latest aircraft innovations. Younger children can learn, explore and play at the Kids Zone. This interactive exhibit, hosted by the Sacramento Children’s Museum, will have inflatables and interactive exhibits for the younger kids, free with admission to the airshow. Guests of all ages will enjoy getting up and close and personal to the aircraft and pilots.
