The Blue Angels will return to the 2014 Milwaukee Air & Water Show to headline the two-day event in June, according to an announcement by event organizers earlier this week.
The Blue Angels, which are the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, last appeared in the Milwaukee Air & Water Show in 2010.
“We are honored to welcome back the Blue Angels to Milwaukee,” said Paul Rogers, president of the Milwaukee Air & Water Show. “Spectators will be able to witness the pride, professionalism, precision and teamwork of Navy and Marine Corps aviation along our premier stretch of lakefront. Since the Blue Angels’ inception in 1946, the team has inspired millions to connect with and support our service members.”
The Blue Angels’ Milwaukee appearance is one of 68 the team has scheduled for this year.
The Milwaukee Air & Water Show, presented by Milwaukee-based Marcus Hotels & Resorts, will run on Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22, with free admission for the general public. Other highlighted acts include airshow performer Sean Tucker with Team Oracle, air show performer Mike Goulian, and the U.S. Army Golden Knights.
As in past years, the 2014 event is expected to draw thousands of visitors and generate millions of dollars of economic impact.
“Each year, millions of dollars in total revenue are created for Milwaukee downtown hotels, restaurants and other venues, showcasing our beautiful lakefront and the very best this city has to offer,” said Brent Foerster, vice president of sales and marketing for VISIT Milwaukee.
Additional show acts will be announced in the coming months. For more information, visit www.milwaukeeairshow.com.
