Join us for the “Jet Blast Bash,” the annual Seafair weekend event at the Museum of Flight. For those who are not familiar, this event takes place on the first weekend of August 4th and 5th from 10am to 4pm. The Navy Blue Angels take off and land for their airshow at Boeing Field, right outside the fence of the parking lot. There will be static aircraft displays, community exhibitors, music, food and family activities in the lot. And if you’ve never seen the Blue Angels take off and land up close, it’s pretty amazing! Please contact our Chair, Theresa White if you are interested in helping out with our table and booth at the event
