What better way to celebrate Father's Day then to enjoy the U.S. Navy Blue Angels airshow with the family. That's what most of Baltimore was doing Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4 pm.
Blue skies and sunshine made for perfect weather to watch the show, have a picnic and take photos. This free airshow was part of the Star-Spangled Sailabration to commemorate the War of 1812 and the writing of the Star Spangled Banner.
The show got off to a late start and there was too much wait time in between acts. Toward the end of the show is when it really kicked in and the angels did not disappoint.
C. Weller from Brooklyn Park said, “Blue Angels were off the hook.”
A. Major from Baltimore said, “The Blue Angels were absolutely breath taking.”
C. Rau from Baltimore said, “The Blue Angels were amazing. Not being mushy but I got chills from head to toe and teared up a little; so Proud to be an American!”
This event ends Tuesday, June 19 with the 40 tall ships sailing out of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor starting at 7 am until 1 pm. The free ship tours are available Monday, June 18 from 11 am to 6 pm.
God Bless America!
