The Hangar Dinner was a buffet of Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, and Brownies with drink.  The Dance followed the evening portion of the air show.  First were presentations from Dacy Air Shows of photographs of the planes with pilots' autographs.

One presentation was to the Hosting Airpot.
Another Presentation to Kelly Marshall of the Depot Inn & Suites in La Plata for being the title sponsor and hosting the Golden Knights for 3 nights.
The Golden Knights came forward and Tom told the crowd that they performed all over the USA, but small town performances like this one were the most enjoyable for them because of the nice people they meet and how well they are treated.
Then the band, Back Roads, began with rock and roll, country and western music.


The "Swingers" dance team from Kirksville performed also, and they enjoyed dancing to the band as well.
