Dennis Dunbar, director of Terre Haute International Airport-Hulman Field, says he has made preparations to help visitors deal with the high temperature and humidity expected this weekend.
"Staying hydrated is very important," Dunbar
...The Prairieton Fire Department
is bringing its Cool Down Bus and shuttle busses will run from the admission gates to the air show area, Dunbar
said the terminal is air-conditioned and the restaurant in the terminal is cool and will be open during the Air Fair.
"Public announcements will provide comments all day on avoiding dehydration and keeping cool," Dunbar
said spectators need to prepare for the day by wearing tennis shoes and light, loose-fitting clothing."Blue jeans are not the proper choice to keep cool," he
"We are welcoming the sunshine since we had rain last year, but we are taking precautions so people can stay healthy out here," Dunbar
said."Past problems occurred because people were not prepared for the air show," he
said.They didn't wear loose, lightweight clothing and didn't drink enough fluids.
The concession stands are pricing drinks low so people can afford to drink plenty, Dunbar
More than 100 exhibitors tents are available for spectators to visit, Dunbar
said those tents provide a shady place for spectators to view many displays.
