HAMMOND – Speros A. Batistatos, president and CEO of the South Shore CVA, has announced that the annual Gary Air Show scheduled for July 12 to 14, has been canceled due to the impacts of sequestration.

“In response to the government’s sequestration measures which have resulted in the intentionally painful cuts of the federal budget and the cancellation of aerial demonstration teams, including flyovers, jump team demonstrations and aerial demonstrations, it is nearly impossible for our show to take place this year and meet the high standards as it has set the past 13 years,” Batistatos said. “It is with a heavy heart, that we have decided that despite our best efforts, we must cancel this year’s show.”

Batistatos said 37 other air shows throughout the nation have already preemptively cancelled their events for this year as well as three international shows, citing sequestration as the reason.
