The Chicago Rockford International Airport has canceled its plans to host Rockford AirFest on Labor Day Weekend.
Rockford AirFest is usually held in June, but was postponed to Labor Day Weekend due to federal sequester cuts that canceled all aerial demonstrations, including flyovers, jump team demonstrations, and participation in civilian air shows as of April 1.
Those cuts are still in effect and without the demonstrations and participation from the Department of Defense, RFD made the decision to scrap the rescheduled event.
Tickets will be refunded through the following outlets:
