Get ready Pensacola, you’ve got just enough time to get downtown to see the Blue Angels fly across downtown. As they have done before, they will likely fly down Palafox, over Palafox Pier, and out toward Pensacola Beach.
The Blue Angels are coming from South Florida. The flyover was originally scheduled for 5:00 p.m. but they may be delayed due to weather. If so, the flyover could take place between 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Because these things are never exact, our team plans to be in position at 5:00 p.m. so we don’t miss it!
Because the Crawfish and Tall Ships Festivals are going on until 6:00 p.m. and the live music at Community Maritime Park begins at 6:00 p.m., you might consider parking away from Palafox and walking over.
Graffiti Pizza is open until 10 p.m., so you could watch the Blue Angel flyover, then walk up to Graffiti Pizza for a pizza to go or stay and have a beer while your pizza cooks!
If you are out at the beach, keep your eyes on the skies as the Blue Angels will likely continue their path from downtown out to the beach before heading home to Naval Air Station Pensacola.
