Battle Creek Air Show in Running for Best in the U.S.
The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival kicks off later this month. The six-day-event is up for "Best Air show in the U.S." in a USA Today and 10Best readers poll.
The 20 air shows in the running were chosen by a panel of experts, and now it's up to a public vote.
Of the Battle Creek Air Show, USA Today and 10Best says:
This mid-summer event in Michigan is an air show and balloon festival rolled into one. The show's signature event is the Tora Tora Tora act, a commemorative reenactment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor featuring eight replica Japanese aircraft and some 60 pyrotechnical effects."
Check out the rest of the competition and cast your vote here! Voting ends July 17 at noon.
The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show runs June 29th through July 4th. The full Tora Tora Tora act with pyro will be performed Sunday, July 2 through Tuesday, July 4. A non-pyro version will be performed on July 1.
