It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s the HB Airshow! Saturday, October 29th, and Sunday, October 1st Huntington Beach held the Breitling Air Show. This was the second time Huntington Beach has hosted the airshow. This year blew last year’s show out of the water. There were 13 performers. Here is some information about our favorites.
This Airshow, as you know, only happens twice a year. During the show, there are many planes, but there are also people who jump out of those planes. The Black Daggers are a crew of parachute jumpers. At the airshow, they are normally one of the first acts to perform, and when they do perform they jump over the crowd. In order to see them, you have to look right above you. The parachute team of the US Army Special Operations Command also perform two jumps. One is the show opening flag jump and the other is their unique combat gear jump. More…
With about 43 on one Jeep trail, Barstow’s High Desert Roundup was a success! The level three trail rating was Achy Breaky, a trail for lifted jeeps. “Lifted jeeps” means that the jeep is more elevated than most jeeps or off-road based cars. This elevation helps the car climb over rocks and rough terrain. Almost all 43 cars had this suspension, and the cars that didn’t has a hard time tackling Achy Breaky’s hills. The group of jeeps left during Memorial Day weekend at 8:15, and returned at about 3:00 p.m. More…
Huntington Beach held their fourth annual Cherry Blossom Festival which celebrates 35 years of amity with Anjo, Japan. It was held Sunday on March 19, 2017, from 11 AM to 5 PM, at Huntington Beach Central Park with free admissions. It was a family-friendly event that had several events.
There was a large variety of fun to choose at the festival. There was Japanese music, dance, martial arts, exhibits, games, crafts, and much food. The exotic food included Japanese foods such as takoyaki, seafood, pancakes, and desserts, which could easily explain the huge lines. The food was popular creating long lines that could easily have one waiting for more than ten to even twenty minutes. More…
Litter is harmful to the environment and should be taken into consideration. Once school is let out, lots of students go over to the park to hang out while they wait for their parents to come get them.
Since the park is not owned by the school, staff can’t control what students do, and it’s up to each individual to decide whether they make the right choice or not. Since the mass amounts of students crowding the park every day the amount of trash and litter around the park is insanely high. More…
