Soar Into Summer
Springfield Air Rendezvous organizers have been busy working on the popular annual street party formerly known as PreVous and now renamed Soar Into Summer.
While there will be no air show this year, organizers have decided to continue this extremely well attended event to assist in raising money for Springfield Air Rendezvous' aviation scholarship program at Lincoln Land Community College.
Soar Into Summer will be held on June 1 from 7 to Midnight on Washington Street between 7th and 9th Streets. Two great local bands: City Limits and F5 will perform respectively with fireworks by Central States Fireworks to light up the downtown sky. Fireworks will go up at approximately 9:15 p.m. $6 entry fee with gates located on 7th and 9th. Music, food and fun while dancing in the streets of downtown Springfield.
Kim Curry, Air Show Coordinator stated, "We are all sad to see the air show ending but Soar Into Summer has always been a popular event and therefore we thought it would be fun to continue the tradition of this fun street party. We, the organizers consider this year as an appreciation party to all the fans that supported the air show over the past 24 years."
Air Rendezvous has donated approximately $70,000 to the LLCC Scholarship Foundation to fund several aviation scholarships. Air Rendezvous is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization with the goal of aviation education and awareness. Monies raised will continue to fund the scholarship programs. To date Air Rendezvous has donated approximately $750,000 in total to local charities.
We hope to see everyone at Soar Into Summer!
