The Big Bird Event, 1997

(Thanks to Lenny for the Big-Bird Graphic)
The first annual BigBird Fly-In was held on August 2-3, and was a huge success with both guests and spectators. It attracted a large crowd which was helped by media coverage from local TV and radio stations. Here are a some of the images of that great weekend as seen through the lens of Ron Sorg's camera. Thanks Ron, and everyone else who contributed to the success of the event.
