Posted: Aug 12 2022

Williston, ND – A drone show will be held in conjunction with the 14-year-old Babe Ruth World Series (BRWS) at Aafedt Stadium on Sunday, August 14 at dusk.

The show will consist of 200 synchronized drones choreographed to music by Firefly Drone Shows. The computer-controlled drones will be stationed at the Western Star Softball Complex. Optimal viewing will be approximately 1,500 feet from the Western Star. People will not be allowed in the complex during the show due to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.

“The FAA has strict guidelines requiring ground clearance for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operations,” explained Williston Economic Development Executive Director Shawn Wenko. “We advise our residents and visitors to please adhere to the safety perimeter that will be established at Western Star.”

The best viewing sites will be within a 1,500-foot radius of the Western Star Softball Complex (see map).

“Optimal public viewing will be Davidson Park, Aafedt Stadium, Cutting Field and Wilkerson Elementary School,” said Wenko. “We kindly ask the pubic not to stop in roadways or stand near intersections or areas of traffic that may pose the risk of an automobile/pedestrian accident."
