If you are interested in getting a prime spot to view all of the aircrafts, parachutes and boats, then we suggest arriving as early as possible. Several people camp out ahead of time just to secure prime space to gain the entire experience.

The performance schedule is not determined until the morning of the first day, but you can find a list of all the performers who will be featured right here.

This event is completely family friendly and offers a wide range of other spots around the beach to grab food, drinks and other entertainment if you are looking for alternative areas in addition to the beach.
