Mountain Madness Airshow Needs Volunteers

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL - The 2014 Mountain Madness airshow hopes to sign up volunteers by June 1.

For the first time in a long time Kalispell gets to see the Thunderbirds with one of their own, pilot Jason Curtis, flying right along with them.

Airshow director Chris Parson says they need about 400 people to pull off the show without a hitch. Volunteers help out with things like concessions, parking, and traffic control.

For each day you serve, you get free tickets and about $50 to donate to the Flathead nonprofit of your choice.

"Real super excited-- things are just building up steam now, and working on it every day, and I know it's really exciting with the Thunderbirds coming in," said Parson.

Parson says they're planning for 30,000 people to come out and see the show that starts August 30.

If you want to volunteer, you can call the Kalispell chamber of commerce at 406.758.2803.
