The phrase Once in a Blue Moon refers to something that occurs rarely.
SkyFest 2015 will experience a blue moon (second full moon in a calendar month) on July 31, the exact date of the Twilight Show. Unbelievable.
Now you may ask, “what is a twilight show?”
“This is an airshow that utilizes pyrotechnics during the twilight hours of the evening. These fireworks, such as the afterburners on the CF-18 military jet, are particularly spectacular,” said Airshow organizer Barb van Halderen.
“The Twilight Show is comprised of selected performers who discharge pyro from their wings in a exciting display along with their amazing aerobatic performance.”
Quesnel’s Twilight Show features Super Dave Mathieson, Manfred Radius with his pyro-emitting sail plane, the Canadian Armed Forces CF-18 with its glowing afterburners and the military Skyhawks Parachute team and plus Flashfire jet truck.
Gates open at 7 p.m. Entrance is by the airport road and purchasing your tickets online at quesnelskyfest.ca, at $20 each, is highly recommended to ensure your admission to this very special show. Some tickets will be available at the gate.
