Airspace Occupied: The Atlantic City Air Show Returns August 22!
There's a whole new twist coming to Atlantic City's Airshow! This year, Atlantic City welcomes the Canadian Snowbirds to the 16th Annual Thunder Over the Boardwalk! With a test run on Tuesday, August 21, the main event is happening on August 22 from 11am-4pm.
If you've never been to an airshow, this is bound to be one you can't miss! Don't worry though, if you can't make it out, you can listen to the ENTIRE show thanks to our sister station, WPG Talk Radio, who will be broadcasting live from the boardwalk.
