Rockford AirFest postponed until Labor Day


ROCKFORD, IL (WKOW) -- Cuts to the U.S. military have grounded this year's air show in Rockford.

Officials say the Rockford AirFest 2013 will not be held June 1-2, as previously scheduled.

Instead, they're planning to hold the air show on Labor Day weekend to give them time to re-group after their headlining act, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, canceled.

People who bought tickets online will get an automatic refund; those who purchased in person need to return to that place to get their money back.
