Are pets allowed?

Pets are not allowed onto the air show area and should not be left in vehicles. Because of the festival setting with food and drink vendors, the Health Department prohibits animals, other than legally allowed guide and assistance animals. Please also understand that temperatures on the tarmac area can easily reach in excess of 120 degrees and will burn a pet’s feet. Plus, the loud noises and explosions can injure their sensitive hearing and/or frighten the animals.

The air show strongly encourages you to bring and use proper hearing protection such as quality ear plugs, and especially so for children. The noise from the jet engines and pyrotechnic explosions may be painful or harmful for some.

Look – Don’t touch

Be careful when you are near airplanes or other displays. Equipment can be easily damaged. Do not touch exhibits unless you have permission from the pilot or owner. Keep your children close and let them know they should not touch anything. No smoking near the aircraft.

Is the show the same both Saturday and Sunday?

Generally, yes, the show is the same. However, there may be some variations depending on special aircraft which may make only a one-day fly-by appearance.

Re-entry will not be allowed once you have left the gates.

Can we watch the show from our car in the parking lot?

No. Even if you have purchased tickets, you must leave your vehicle and view the show from inside the air show grounds. This rule is due to FAA safety regulations involving the performance area.

Can I arrange for a handicap parking drop off/pick up close to the eating area?

Unfortunately, we do not have shuttle service to/from the show due to foot traffic and aircraft proximity.

Why the restrictions on coolers, large bags, and totes?

The FAA and Department of Homeland Security have required us to enforce these rules for your safety. You will be on airport grounds. This is a rule common to all airports, major air shows, and events in the U.S.

What are the radio frequencies used by the air show?

That information is not released to the general public.
