Busy weekend in London…Jeeze Louise!
Believe it or not, this is London’s first airshow in over a decade!
More than 25,000 people from across Southwestern Ontario are expected to attend AirShow London, which runs through the weekend at the London International Airport.
The “Hour of Power” kicks off the high-flying festivities at 5p.m. afternoon featuring the Snowbirds’ CT-114 Tutors, a CF-18 jet, and an F-22 Raptor.
Here’s some downtown action I caught near the FM96 building:

7th Annual Dundas Street Festival
The 7th annual Dundas Street Festival. Is also going down starting at 8: 30 tonight – my pal Aaron Mcmillan is the festival director and he has two free music stages set up for you. One at the Fanshawe downtown campus and one at the Impark lot – and you can’t miss it because there’s a huge octopus on the side of the wall. In terms of music, it’s a little bit of everything from rock and blues to hip hop, electronic, and DJs.
