Don't be surprised if you get a neck ache from looking up during this two-day event. Join throngs of people at North Beach and surrounding areas to catch air and watercraft demonstrations, including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights.

Stay away from the lake when this high-flying event comes to town. If you really need to get your "woosh" fix in, find a friend with rooftop access nearby. I like planes as much as anyone, but I wouldn't say the spectacle of manned flight is worth sifting through a crowd of people who are trying to find meaning to life in a summertime lakefront sky.
