Rockford AirFest cancelled


ROCKFORD, IL (WKOW) -- All hope is lost for the 2013 Rockford AirFest; officials announced Thursday it's been cancelled.

The airshow was already postponed because of the federal sequester cuts that forced all of the military air teams to cancel their appearances this year.

Rockford officials were hoping to reschedule their show to Labor Day, but said they couldn't put together one that was good enough without the military's Blue Angels or Thunderbirds.

Anyone who bought tickets can call for a refund.
