Summer events: Fargo hosts Navy, AirSho

FARGO – This week is Fargo Navy Week, as 2011 marks the centennial of naval aviation.

Topping off the week of celebration, the Fargo AirSho 2011 will be Saturday and Sunday.

Bryan Shinn, of Fargo AirSho Public Relations, said attendees can expect top-notch entertainment.

“We booked some of the best acts in the air show industry,” he said. “We actually have people calling us to be in our air show.”

Just a few of the acts that will be at the two-day family event include the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, historic warbird performances and Skydive Fargo.

Both days, gates open at 9 a.m., with performances from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Fargo Air Museum will also celebrate the centennial with several naval aviation exhibits.
