San Francisco...Fleet Week! Blue Angels Air Show & Parade of Ships!





If San Franciscans - and tourists alike - are startled by a thunderous roar in the heavens above in the next day or two - there is no need to scurry for shelter for fear there is a wild stormy downpour on the horizon.

Uh-huh!

The Blue Angels - in town for dazzling Fleet Week - are probably responsible for the shake-up in the normally-friendly skies!

The annual event launches on Friday October 7th at Pier 39 in San Francisco.

Highlights include a Navy Band Southwest Concert (4-7pm) on Friday afternoon, an Air Show featuring the Blue Angeles on Saturday (12:30-4pm) on Saturday (October 8th), LoveFool Concert (4-7pm) on Saturday evening, and a Blue Angels meet-and-greet on Sunday October 9th (7-7:45pm).
