September 19, 2010 was the Misawa Air Show and 100,000 people showed up! I volunteered for a few things here so it was a busy time for me! I baked 12 plain devil’s food cakes for some organization that I cannot remember. Cakes and pizza are two of the biggest sellers at the Air Show. It is one of the only times the Japanese citizens have an opportunity to go on base and eat American food.
I also made a poster for 35MOS. They were selling turkey legs! They looked delicious!
I also volunteered at the JAFC booth. (Japanese International Friendship Club). We sold cakes, doughnuts, candy bars and drinks. They had made 100 cakes and we sold out! And one man bought 30 Hershey’s bars! And how could he not with salespeople like us!
Around 3pm it started raining pretty hard and everyone left. All in all, I had a great time at the Air Show even though I didn’t have a chance to walk around.
