IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Idaho Falls Air Show Inc. announced today that the Navy’s Blue Angels and the U.S. Navy Flight team will be coming to Idaho Falls on July 22 and 23, 2017.
“We’re just so excited to announce this to the public,” said Russell Johnson, a member of the Idaho Falls Air Show director board. “We had such a positive response to our last air show that we wanted to do it again.”
Johnson said they learned their lessons from the last show and said this one will be even better. “We’ll have a lot more food vendors. People will be allowed to bring umbrellas and water to help stay cool during the summer.”
Idaho Falls city leaders say the expect the show to bring in large crowds from around the region. “In 2010 we had about 50,000 people attend the show. This time around we’re anticipating double that number,” said Councilman Ed Marohn of Idaho Falls.
With those large crowds, Marohn said the city estimates regional economic impact could be as much as $50 million. “The hotels, the restaurants, gas stations, shopping, all of that will benefit the area. Plus it will be a good entertainment value for the area, not just for Idaho Falls, but for the entire eastern Idaho region,” said Marohn.
Aero Mark is the host venue for the 2017 air show. West Mark Credit Union will be one of the key sponsors for the event. Idaho Falls Air Show Inc. will have marketing packets available soon for business or individuals interested in being a sponsor for the air show.
