Honor Your Hero
This year’s theme for the 2012 Tuscaloosa Regional Air Show presented by McAlister's Deli is "Honoring our Heroes" and we couldn't be more excited about it! The 2012 air show will serve as an opportunity for the City of Tuscaloosa, Northport and Tuscaloosa County to give back to all of our heroes at this premier event. Whether you are a teacher, parent, civic leader, veteran, tornado survivor, first responder, coach (the list could go on!), you or someone you know has most likely impacted someone else's life. We want to use this opportunity to personally thank you. Please continue to check back to learn how we are honoring our heroes at this event and to learn how you can honor your hero at the 2012 Tuscaloosa Regional Air Show presented by McAlister's Deli!
