Blue Angels Air Show at Pensacola Beach
There are a lot of great family-friendly events in Northwest Florida, but the Blue Angels Pensacola Beach Air Show is one of the biggest. Visitors from all over come to witness one of the most spectacular air shows in the world! The Blue Angels are the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron. Since 1948, aviators from the Navy and Marines perform phenomenal flying aerobatic tricks in front of spectators. Their home base is right here in Pensacola, so the Pensacola Beach air show every summer is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year– and it’s this weekend! The Blue Angels are scheduled to fly both Friday, July 12th, and Saturday, July 13th, at 2 pm.
Pensacola Beach Air Shows
Throughout the year, the Blue Angels tour the United States, but Pensacola is still their home base. Because of this, they actually have two air shows a year right on the Emerald Coast. This weekend, the Blue Angels are having their annual Pensacola Beach Air Show where spectators can watch the planes from their boats or from the beach. In addition to their summer show, they also have an annual Homecoming Show every November when they finish touring the country.
If you’re in town this weekend, you don’t want to miss out on the Pensacola Beach Air Show. Spectators can watch the Blue Angels’ dress rehearsal on Friday or the main show on Saturday. Both events begin at 11 am with aerobatic acts and the Blue Angels overhead at 2 pm. In addition, the event will also feature interactive exhibits, military recruitment stations, and all types of vendors to check out while you’re there. Overall, this is an event your whole family will love!
