Default Blue Angels November 9th & 10th

My wife and I will be visiting the Destin area next week and we've never had an opportunity to see a live Blue Angels performance.

Is there a good land based location in or near Pensacola where we could view this event?

Any information would be most appreciated.

P'cola beach would be about the best view from land and gets quite crowded but at least it won't be blistering hot. Get there early though! Another option is to get on base and watch the show from there if ya can.

Is'nt that one on the base??? You have a show on the beach and one on the base a thought.

Its usually this time of year for the one on the base. Am I right?

On the base, arrive early, no coolers, have fun. Enter through the back gate.

As I recall, the Pensacola Beach show,has always been in July. The homecoming show is always in November and is held at Sherman Field on Pensacola NAS. That's where you want to be to see this show the best. Can't speak to the night show, as I haven't attended that one, but it sounds awesome. I don't recall the reason, but did see the Blues at Whiting Field in Milton on one occasion about 14 years ago. May have been prior to the Pensacola Beach shows.

Hey CW are you taking the Grand kids down also? If so get there early and take them through the Aviation museum. How has the pontoon life been going?

Thanks Y'all.....this is exactly what we needed to know. We'll get up early Saturday AM, have breakfast, and head to the back gate at NAS-Pensacola. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but I'm guessing that civilians are allowed on base for this show and the other events?

Sam, nograndson this trip.....jus me and the granmoma. We really love the pontoon boat on Lake Martin but we're not sure just how muchlonger we'll be able to use it with the drought conditions we've experiencedthis year.

The lake is at 475.5' right now which is about 14.5' down from full pool. I still have about 13' of water under my slip.....but there's only 5' of water at the end of my dock and if it gets as low as some folks are predicting, I won't be able to get out of the marina. It's sorta like being at real low tide for several weeks at a time.

The fish areeasier to find though, due to there being less water for them to hide in.

c.w.
