The Niagara Historical Society and Museum is bringing the Snowbirds to town, and time is running out for VIP tickets.
The Sept. 11 event is a fundraiser, with a goal of raising $20,000 for renovating and expanding the museum.
“It’s a great place to see the show, from inside the hangar,” says volunteer Cheryl Morris. There are 400 tickets available for this option.
VIP tickets for adults and children include gourmet food, a prime viewing spot in one of the airplane hangers, and the opportunity to meet members of the Snowbirds team in person following their performance. Tickets are $90 for adults until Aug. 30, and $100 from Aug. 31 to Sept. 6. VIP tickets for children are $35 until Aug. 30, and $45 from Aug. 31 to Sept. 6.
VIP tickets must be purchase by Sept. 6.
Tickets can be purchased online for VIP or general admission at notlsnowbirds.ca.
The last appearance of the Snowbirds in NOTL drew 3,000 people, says Morris.
General access tickets are $10 per person. Entry is free for those 12 and under. This area will feature food trucks from PigOut, Johnny Rocco’s, Hometown Ice Cream and Train Coffee. The Niagara Region Water Wagon will be there too.
Morris suggests people bring their own chair or blanket for seating. It’s an optimal viewing point, and there is also an opportunity to meet the Snowbird pilots through the security fence, she says.
Parking is free for all guests.
Gates open at 2 p.m., providing access to an aircraft display with military and vintage planes and to food trucks. The Geronimo skydiving team will begin performing at 3 p.m.
