Organisers allways advise visitors to get to the resort early as demand for public car parks is likely to be exceptionally high.
An overspill car park will be available at Blackpool Airport at the south end of the promenade, offering visitors a chance to park all day for £5 using the PayByPhone app. The car park is a short walk from the Starr Gate tram terminus, where people can take a tram to the Tower Festival Headland.
Blackpool Airshow is one of Blackpool’s most p[opular events, attracting around 100,000 people over the weekend, with the Red Arrows being a perenial favourite.
Team Leader of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team and Red 1, said:
Displaying at Blackpool is always one of the highlights of any busy summer for the Red Arrows. With the Tower in sight and the wonderful coastline stretching out before you, Blackpool is a location which really excites you as a display pilot.
One of the key aims of the Red Arrows is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds through a dynamic demonstration of teamwork and precision. This is another reason why Blackpool Air Show is a great event for us – it attracts tens of thousands of people, many of whom are families, and it’s wonderful to know so many are watching and enjoying our new display.
To complement the aerial programme, there will be plenty to see and do on the ground with a wide range of stalls, attractions and food concessions in the Air Show Village on the Tower Festival Headland.
