A tremendous twilight show and perfect weather helped bring significantly larger crowds to the Abbotsford International Airshow this year, organizers say.
Final numbers are not yet available, but the airshow’s Jadene Mah said a rough estimate pegged the crowds at 25 per cent larger than last year’s event, with tens of thousands of people attending each day.
“Everyone is just so pleased with the success of this year’s show,” Mah said. “The many changes were reflected in the increased [attendance].”
The airshow had never before hosted a twilight show, but Friday’s evening event went off without a hitch and provided a new way of experiencing the festivities.
