The show kicks off around 11:45 a.m. and ends around 3:00 p.m. both days. The show center is at Birch State Park.
According to organizers, those watching the show are not allowed to set up chairs on A1A. There are free public locations north and south of the show center and tickets are still available for the Drop Zone premium beach area.
For those planning to watch the show from a boat, the U.S. Coast Guard has established a Safety Zone to both keep non-essential personnel clear of the aerobatic box and to keep boat anchors from damaging the coral reefs offshore. Viewing is permitted on the eastern side of the zone which extends for four miles.READ MORE: College Grads Having No Problem Finding Work

- Fort Lauderdale Beach Park (700 Seabreeze Boulevard)
