The 87th National Cherry Festival kicked off the week with a crowd favorite, the air show!

Thousands gathered in Traverse City's West Bay to watch the popular event, which is a preview of what's to come tonight.

For the first time, the National Cherry Festival will host a night air show, and people are looking forward to it.

9 & 10's Marisa McKay was at the festival to learn what the crowd favorites are this year.

And since Mother Nature was good to the cherry crops this year, we can guess cherries are on everyone's lists.
