DAVENPORT, Iowa - It's been three years since there's been a Quad City Air Show, but that all changes Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30.

Air Boss Ken Hopper, who puts on the show, did not have a contract with the city of Davenport in years past, but that problem has since been resolved.

Gates open at 8 a.m. both days. The main show starts at noon and ends at 4 p.m. Gates close at 5 p.m. It all takes place at the Davenport Municipal Airport. The United States Navy Blue Angels will be there. For ticket information, click here.

There will be plenty of live music, food, drinks, art, pyrotechnics performances, belly dancers, Burlesque, and much more. There is a drag show both days at 5:00 p.m.

Last year, it was held in the Village of East Davenport due to a crash that impacted Mary's on 2nd. This year, it will be back at West 2nd and Warren Streets in Davenport.
