The Blue Angels air show is one of the biggest annual events in the Imperial Valley and for good reason. It attracts tens of thousands of people from the Imperial Valley and elsewhere. They come to be thrilled not only by the Angels but by the stunt pilots and aerobatics staged throughout the day.
While many local people will be involved with the large animal auction and other activities at the California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta on Saturday, we urge all who can to enjoy Saturday's display by the Navy's elite flight demonstration team. The show is free and one the whole family can enjoy together. The show offers a chance to take part in an event few areas experience.
Not everyone has the Blue Angels practice in their own back yard. That is one more thing that makes living in the Imperial Valley just a little more special.
The Valley has a strong relationship with the Angels. Our weather and open air space have attracted the Blue Angels for winter training for decades. The team arrives in January and almost every day you can either hear or see the familiar blue and gold jets piercing the skies above the Imperial Valley. The team and its crew stay in the Valley until March.
