San Diego Air Show and Kids

Marine Corps Air Station Miramar is the place to be the weekend of Sept. 30th for the largest Air Show in the country. The theme this year is “A Salute to San Diego: Birthplace of Naval Aviation 1911 - 2011. The incredible U.S. Navy Blue Angels perform every year and are the highlight of the show.

We have been many times and our Kids enjoy climbing through and sitting in the air craft and helicopters. We have always felt safe but have needed earplugs, ear mufflers are best for kids when the jets fly over head.

You can bring your stroller or wagon through with your lunch and umbrella in. Bring sun screen and camera as there are lots of great photo opportunities for your family. Be prepared to walk a lot or ride the bus from the parking lot.

The Air Show will take place on Sept. 30, and October 1, 2 at MCAS Miramar. With the twilight show on Saturday at 5:30. To complement the aerial performances, the flight line will have military equipment exhibits, air show memorabilia, and plenty of food and refreshments.

To get there, take I-5 to the Miramar Rd. exit, and follow Miramar Rd. to the west gate of MCAS Miramar. You can sit on a blanket on ground or purchase special seating (grandstand, box seat, and chalet) at (619) 220-TIXS. For more information call (858) 577-1000 or visit www.miramarairshow.com.You can also check out Fleet Week in September, www.fleetweeksandiego.org
