The Manitoba Airshow hits the sky July 7th and 8th and more volunteers are needed.  Southport Airport and Commercial Properties CEO Peggy May says they have a good number already.

"We have a few hundred volunteers now but it's nice to have extras. We want to make sure every volunteer has an opportunity to experience the show as well so most only volunteer for a day. Some people are so enthusiastic they do work both and bring their families along."

She explains the air show is another great reason to put Portage la Prairie on people's radar this summer. May adds the air show will help showcase the city and adds several other events are on that weekend as well.
