ROCKFORD - After a one year hiatus, Airfest is returning.
It's set for June 7 & 8 and the Thunderbirds will headline the show.
Airfest was canceled last year because of the government sequester, which halted funding for the Dept. of Defense. Air shows across the country were canceled as a result.
In addition to the Thunderbirds, the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, are also confirmed to be performing this year.
