Strong man to appear at West Acres today

FARGO - Mark Kirsch, one of the performers for the 2011 Fargo Airsho Saturday and Sunday at Fargo Hector International Airport, will be pulling a semi with a trailer loaded with Case IH Agricultural Equipment in the West Acres mall parking lot starting at 6 p.m. today.

Kirsch, billed as the world's strongest man, has pulled a KC-135 Super Tanker Air Force refueling aircraft weighing more than 150,000 pounds 80 feet at previous air shows.

The ambassadors with the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce will be conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the 2011 Fargo Airsho. The public is welcome and there is no charge for this event.

This event will take place in the north parking lot near the main entrance.
