Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach
If you’re a fan of high-powered excitement, there’s really nothing better than the Bethpage Air Show, which is staged annually over Jones Beach State Park on Memorial Day Weekend.
This year, the show welcomes back the United States Navy Blue Angels, along with other countless amazing performers who are sure to wow the crowd with their stunts! If you’re into thrilling, low-altitude, precision-formation flying, the GEICO Skytypers will be there showcasing their famous skytyped messages in the sky. If you’re interested in history, they’ll have the American Airpower Museum Warbirds. Like aerobatics with those old biplanes? Check. Check. Check. The air show is a total thrill, no matter how many times you’ve seen it.
The 2018 Bethpage Air Show takes place this Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27, 10 AM - 3 PM. It’s free, and always crowded. If you want to watch the action in style, the centrally-located Jones Beach VIP Chalet allows you to view the show from a private beachfront area set up specifically for VIP ticket holders. There’s a fully-catered continental breakfast, hot and cold buffet lunch, and a beverage service that includes a beer and wine bar at no additional fee. Arguably the most valuable benefits are a VIP Parking Pass (1 per order) and use of upgraded private restroom facilities located behind the Chalet for VIP guests only. This all comes at a price, of course: one-day adult tickets (13 years & up) cost $250 each and children’s tickets (6 -12 years old) are $125 each. Children 5 and under are free.
