US Navy Blue Angels Vote National Cherry Festival ‘2018 Air Show of The Year’

A big honor for the National Cherry Festival.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels voted and named the event the 2018 Air Show of the Year.

The Blue Angels made the announcement Wednesday at the International Council of Air Shows Conference in Las Vegas.

Steve Plamondon is the festival’s air boss.

He says “this honor shows just how well our entire community roles out the ‘cherry red carpet’ for every distinguished guest coming to the National Cherry Festival, including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.”

The event was named Air Show of the Year last year by the U.S. Airforce Thunderbird Team.
