Tampa, Florida - AirFest 2013 at MacDill AFB has been canceled because of sequestration. The event was supposed to happen on April 6th and 7th.

Base officials announced the canellation Friday evening, shortly after the budget cuts.

"We waited until the very last minute kind of hoping for a breakthrough," said Terry Montrose, a spokesman for the 6th Air Mobility Wing.

The event routinely draws up to 100,000 people to the area.
