UPDATE: Sequester cuts force cancellation of MacDill AirFest 2013

It’s official folks, there will be no AirFest this April at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa due to the dreaded “Sequester” cuts, according to various local media sources.

Though I do not wish to get in too deep on political matters, it is a huge disappointment for many who were hoping to see the event during the month of April, as well as local and even state government officials who were looking forward to seeing the economic impact that the event brings each year.

For HART, it will be just business as usual on the weekend of April 6 (this was confirmed to me by HART staff on March 8).
