MacDill: 140,000 people showed up at weekend's AirFest

TAMPA — About 140,000 people attended this year's AirFest at MacDill Air Force Base on Saturday and Sunday. That's 5,000 more than last year.

Most of those people, about 80,000, showed up on Saturday, when the sky was sunny and temperatures stayed in the 70s through the afternoon.

Sunday's events were dampened by showers and thunderstorms, and AirFest activities were delayed until about 3:15 p.m. But MacDill officials said about 60,000 people still showed up to watch a closing demonstration by the Navy's Blue Angels.
