It's time to buy those Shrinersfest buttons

You can buy your button now for this summer's Shrinersfest. 

They cost $5, and will help pay for the festival.

This year, you'll only need the button to get into the air shows, as opposed to needing it for all the events. The Blue Angels aren't coming this year, but officials say they've put together quite a show.

"The Blue Angels affected everything across the country because a lot of air shows just thought they financially couldn't do it without them, so they dropped out. We've got enough sustained other acts, that we're going to do fine. We hope people buy the button anyway. It's $5. It supports a family oriented-type activity," Shrinersfest spokesman, Dale Thomas says.

The festival runs from July 3-7, along with a few events the weekend before.
