It’s almost that time of year again, one of the most fun times to vacation in Pensacola Beach. Red, White and Blues Week kicks off on July 4, 2016 and continues through the Pensacola Beach Airshow taking place July 16, 2016!
The Navy Aerial Demonstration Team, also known as the Blue Angels, are a treasured tradition here in Pensacola Beach. The area is lucky that the team calls NAS Pensacola home, so we are often treated to a show over the beaches or around town just by looking up. The Pensacola Beach Airshow, however, is out of this world! And, trust us, you will want to reserve one of our beachfront condos in Pensacola Beach for the show!
While the airshow is awesome, there are several events the week of that will add to your fun and anticipation. On July 13, 2016, head out to the beach around 8AM to catch practice over the beach. This is also known as having Breakfast with the Blues. You can catch additional practices and even the dress rehearsal on that Thursday and Friday respectively beginning at 2PM.
On Saturday, July 16, 2016, the airshow kicks off officially at noon with aerial demonstrations by various pilots and teams, while the Blue Angels will fly at 2PM. If you are not staying in a Pensacola Beach condo rental with a view of the show, we highly recommend grabbing the trolley and hitting the sand early. The beach fills up quickly every year, but this year promises an extra turnout, as this will be the Blue Angels first official flight at home since the death of their No. 6 pilot, Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss earlier this summer.
If you haven’t already reserved your vacation in Pensacola Beach for the airshow, call us today! We have only a few rentals available and a sale going on for a limited time only. See you at the show!
