SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The ninth annual California Capital Airshow (CCA), presented by Sacramento County, today announced that discounted General Admission tickets are now available for purchase at all SAFE Credit Union branch locations throughout the region in addition to the event’s website. The Airshow will be held at Mather Airport on September 6-7, 2014 - featuring all things shiny, fast and loud.
Airshow attendees won’t want to miss spine-tingling F-22 Raptors, Harriers, and the Patriots Jet Demonstration Team while experiencing thrilling aerobatics, barnstorming, pyrotechnics, vintage aircraft, music, choreography and so much more!
“Did you know that a weekend at the Airshow provides families with a greater return on investment value than most theme parks and sporting events in our region? With an Airshow ticket, fans are provided seven and a half hours of family entertainment for $20.00 or less per person,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the CCA. “If you plan ahead, a family of four can purchase our Family Four Pack for just $50.00! Where else can you purchase family entertainment for that many hours? And once inside the gates you’ll be amazed at the plethora of entertainment on the ground and in the sky!”
The Show will also showcase 'Stars & Stripes Forever' a salute to veterans and the greatest generation. Attendees will step back in time with an authentic theatrical production featuring professional military re-enactors, parade of vintage warbirds, tanks, live USO-style music, costumes and pyrotechnics. 2014 is the 70th anniversary of D-Day and this colorful and emotional tribute will be a fitting way to honor one of the most important events of the 20th century, while showing gratitude to the men and women who serve and sacrifice in order to provide the freedoms we all enjoy today.
There is so much to see and do inside the gates at Mather Airport! If you haven’t been to the Show in a couple of years, you are in for a real treat. Aerojet Rocketdyne’s LaunchPad, the Kid’s Zone, and SAFE Credit Union’s DREAM BIG Pavilion all seek to combine the love of games and technology with real world application. Filled with aircraft, space artifacts, robots, flight simulators and more, guests can watch demonstrations, participate in games and experience first-hand the clear relationship between aviation, aerospace and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies in school. Kids will also have the opportunity to rub shoulders with men and women who have used their education to change the world.
“It’s going to be an incredible show! We truly have something for everyone to enjoy,” continued Brewer.
