Quesnel SkyFest Twilight Show moved to Saturday night

Due to rain and low cloud ceiling, tonight’s show has been moved to Saturday at 8:15 p.m.

The SkyFest Twilight Show is moving to Saturday night.

Due to the rainy weather and the low cloud ceiling of below 1,000 feet, SkyFest organizers have decided to move the Twilight Show originally scheduled for tonight (Friday, Aug. 2) to Saturday evening (Aug. 3).

“We know this change may inconvenience some, but in all good conscience we cannot ask our performers to risk flying in these conditions,” according to a press release from SkyFest. “This increment weather and the possibility of thunderstorms not only prove a hazard to our performers and volunteers, but to our loyal fans as well and we are not willing to jeopardize anyone’s safety. Safety is our paramount concern.”

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds, SkyHawks and the CF-18 fighter jet have arrived, at the Quesnel Regional Airport, along with many of this weekend’s civilian performers. SkyFest 2019 is ready, and set to go.

“We are confident that our patrons are extremely understanding and will know this is the best decision for all,” SkyFest organizers state in the release.

Saturday and Sunday gate opening times remain the same at 9 a.m. Showtimes are as previously scheduled to start at 11 am.

On Saturday, the day show will be followed by the Twilight Show at 8:15 p.m. Gates open at 7 p.m.

Friday passes will be honoured at Saturday’s Twilight Show, according to SkyFest.

According to Environment Canada, the weather forecast for Saturday is mainly cloudy with a 60 per cent chance of showers int he morning, clearing in the afternoon and a high of 21 C. Sunday’s forecast is for sunshine and a high of 24 C.

SkyFest organizers encourage people to come to the Quesnel Regional Airport today (Friday), as it is still a buzz of excitement, as they prepare for the airshow.
