Lauderdale Air Show Will Be Soaring Again In 2016
The Lauderdale Air Show will return from its two-year hiatus in the spring of 2016.
The beachfront air show was canceled in 2014 due to runway construction at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airpot and again in 2015 because of road construction along A1A, where spectators gather for the event.
On Tuesday, the City of Fort Lauderdale Commission approved a three-year agreement with Lauderdale Air Show, with the 2016 event set to take place May 7 and 8.
The viewing area for the show will stretch from East Sunrise Boulevard to NE 14th Court along Fort Lauderdale Beach.
Headlining aerial acts for the 2016 show will be announced on Dec. 7, and pre-sale tickets are now available online.
Introductory-priced tickets to view the 2016 Air Show from its Drop Zone Beach start at $24 per day for adults and $16 for children. Photography enthusiasts who want access to the photo pit for close-up shots can pay $99 until Dec. 14, or $150 the day of.
VIP spectators can watch the show from a private beach area with chairs, or underneath a clubhouse tent with covered seating. They'll also be served lunch and have reserved parking near the Lauderdale Air Show Center. VIP access costs $125 per day, or $250 the day of.
