Gary Air Show Fills Lakefront With The Sound Of Thunder

As always, the 2010 Gary South Shore Air Show was an excellent event to everyone to see!

USAF Thunderbirds - Gary Indiana Air Show 2010

The show was on Saturday July 10th and Sunday, July 11th, and thanks to the folks at the South Shore Convention & Visitors Authority, the Me Team was able to get a birds eye view so that our viewers could get a glimpse of the action as well as some pretty cool pictures for those who could not attend.

The weather was perfect and despite a few clouds, you couldn’t ask for a better day for an air show. The people in Northwest Indiana and surrounding areas lined the beaches of Marquette Park in Gary Indiana, and the smiles on kids faces were everywhere, not to mention the fantastic food, souvenirs and information that was available on the midway.
