FREE Twilight Teaser Air Show over the Petitcodiac River on Friday, August 22
Exciting night show kicks off Air Show Atlantic at Greater Moncton International Airport

MONCTON - All eyes will be 'up' in Downtown Moncton on Friday, August 22 as the City of Moncton is pleased to host the Twilight Teaser show as part of Air Show Atlantic 2014. This rarely done nighttime event will kick off the Air Show weekend. All of the excitement takes place in Riverfront Park at around 8 p.m.  Also, C103 will be doing a live broadcast so if you are not within hearing distance of the announcer and the speakers setup at Riverfront Park, you can still enjoy the music and commentary accompanying all of the flying performances. Simply tune in on your vehicle and/or portable radio.

"Moncton is so pleased to welcome back our friends from the Air Show Atlantic team," said Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc. "2007 was a special year when we were treated to a downtown show that was enjoyed by many. Now, seven years later, Air Show Atlantic is kicking off right where we left off; at Riverfront Park in Downtown Moncton. I hope everyone comes out to the FREE Twilight Teaser, as well as the rest of the weekend's activities."

"To put on a night show you need a great venue - we have Riverfront Park in Downtown Moncton," explained Show Executive Director Colin Stephenson. "You need excellent night acts - we have three of the best in the world: bringing variety, excitement and amazing effects combined with their ability to fly aerobatics at night."

The Twilight Teaser kicks off a full weekend of activities at the Greater Moncton International Airport. The official Air Show is taking place Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24 and a full schedule, ticketing information and listing of performers can be found at www.airshowatlantic.ca.
