California Capitol Airshow in Sacramento

On September 10th & 11th, 2011 Sacramento plays host to the California Capitol Airshow.  This is the Sixth Annual airshow and  “this year’s event will entertain, mesmerize, and educate fans of all ages with exhilarating jet demonstrations, world-renowned aerobatic performers, jet trucks, warbirds, and an endless variety of interactive displays. Honoring the courage and sacrifice of our veterans, as well the men and women who currently serve our great nation, this is sure to be an event that you will never forget” as the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau says.

A great Sacramento information site is Sacramento Discover Gold  and you can Twitterize them @DiscoverGold to follow information about all the great things to do in my hometown.

The California Capitol Airshow is a (501c3) non-profit corporation created by the County of Sacramento and “the mission of the California Capital Airshow will, in part, be accomplished by giving back to the community through the awarding of scholarships for (people) interested in pursuing careers in aviation, aeronautics, and aerospace.”

So, when you buy your tickets for the airshow you are providing scholarships for some great kids.  Nice!!  I love Sacramento, it is a great community.
