Lots to see at Jacksonville Beach this weekend if you turn your eyes to the sky.
The 2012 Sea & Sky Spectacular kicks off Saturday morning with a wide range of acts and events to enjoy.
“They’re gunna see a lot of camaraderie, they’re certainly gunna see a lot of amazing acts, and who could not like the Blue Angels!” says Naval Station Mayport Spokesman Bill Austin.
Mayport is partnering with Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach to present the event. It will feature military and civilian flight teams, have displays which you can interact with, live entertainment, vendors and more.
“Lots of logistics, a lot of work leading up to it, but it really pays off when you see the smiles on the faces,” Austin says.
The event is free, and the city is providing a free shuttle from the TPC lots west of A1A on Palm Valley Road/SR 210, however parking there costs $20 per vehicle. The event will be held 9:30 AM-3:30 PM Saturday and Sunday. The shuttle runs from 8:00 AM-6:00 PM both days.
