They’re back — those amazing military jets that shake the ground, roar with the Phoenix and mesmerize everyone.
“Last year we didn’t have the military jets, so our crowds were down,” Michael Roberts, vice president of the Stuart Air Show said. “We had about 35,000. We should top 40,000. Our ticket sales are already ahead of last year, with the military coming back.”
In other words, the Air Force F-22 Raptor and Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier are people magnets.
“The Stuart Air Show has never had these,” Roberts said.
The show will launch on Oct. 31, 5 to 10 p.m., with a special Halloween edition.

It was a day for dog owners far and wide to dress up their pets to help benefit Dogs For Life, Vero Beach, Oct. 18.
The event, billed as “Howl-O-Ween,” had more than 60 dogs and their owners marching in the “pawrade,” in all their costumed finery. In all, more than 300 attended.
“Aww, look at that cute one!” was a phrase heard throughout the day. Costumes ranged from superheroes, ballerinas, butterflies and bumblebees, and there were even two dressed up as spiders, inspired by a video prank that recently went “viral” on the Internet (type “dog spider prank” in a search engine to view the hilarious stunt).
