The Crossroads of America Council of Boy Scouts of America will host the new Crossroads Air Show in 2023. The organization says the event, which will take place at the Indianapolis Regional Airport in Greenfield, will feature a demonstration from the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
Governor Eric Holcomb announced plans for the air show Thursday during the annual Governor’s Luncheon for Scouting. Holcomb’s office says the event will raise funds to provide development programs, camps, training for more than 26,000 young people involved in scouting.
The funds will also support the Riley Children’s Foundation and mentoring programs through the Catch the Stars Foundation, which was founded by former Indiana Fever star Tamika Catchings.
“Today was the perfect day to announce the Crossroads Air Show,” said Joe Wiltrout, president of the Crossroads of America Council. “We are surrounded by members of the community already dedicated to giving back to Scouting, so it only felt right that this group should know first about this exciting event, which will bring a unique experience for families of all ages to our state.”
The organization says it is working with the Indianapolis Airport Authority to bring the show to the airport formerly known as Mount Comfort Airport.
“The Indianapolis Airport Authority is dedicated to enhancing the community through thoughtful airport programming. Our airports exist for our communities,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. “We are thrilled to host this spectacular show for the Central Indiana community and the mission behind the Blue Angels is especially inspiring.”
