At last, the date for the Blue Angels' performance on Pensacola Beach this summer has been finalized. It will be July 11th!
For some reason tentative dates kept shifting between July 11 and July 18, but you may now mark your calendars!
For folks visiting during that second weekend of July, this means the Blue Angels will be also be practicing over the beach Thursday morning, July 9th. A dress rehearsal with other participants will be held on July 10. In the past that list has included favorites such as the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, Gary Ward in his MX2, Julian MacQueen in his vintage Grumman Widgeon G-44, Vortex Aerobatic, and the Geico Skytypers (I'd really like to see them again!).
