      Hey Patricia, yes and yes! No alcoholic beverages, but a cooler with snacks and drinks like water and juice is fine. Also fine to bring beach chairs.

    You said 17th and Boardwalk . . . but how do we “find” you , if we’re drop zone ticket holders .. .. . where do we go to check in ? and also, in that Noon to 4pm time-frame, will the blue angels themselves be the first to perform since they’re headlining ?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Diane, you won’t be able to miss us – there are three gates set up for access to the Drop Zone Beach near 17th Street by the sea wall. You’ll go there to have your tickets scanned. The Blue Angels perform last in the line-up, so in the mid-afternoon time frame.

      Hey Thomas, so we will have a designated area that is for ticketed guests only that day that is close to show center. The show kicks off at noon and will run until about 3:30 pm.

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Kristina, it’s right around 17th Street on the boardwalk. Give or take a few meters in either direction!

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Steve, we’ll be posting that information a couple weeks prior to the show. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates on the performers as we announced addition ones!

    Are all the 2018 comments still appropriate for the 2019 show? I am particularly confused by the different comments on whether umbrellas are available for rent. And do the umbrellas sell out? Finally, what time does the show begin and end? Thanks.

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Tom, we’re in the process of cleaning up the old comments, as some things change from year-to-year. For 2019, YES umbrellas will be available for rent in the Drop Zone Beach area. You can also bring your own if you like. Umbrellas are more likely to sell out on Saturday than Sunday, but we bring out vendors with sizeable supplies so last year it was just fine. The Drop Zone Beach opens at 10 am and the show runs from noon to about 4 pm. Let us know if you have any follow-up questions, and know that we are in the process of cleaning up the old comments! 🙂

      Hey Tammie, we have a whole page devoted just to that (Where to Stay) to help you decide. These hotels are all along the boardwalk, with the ones between 14th to 18th street being closest to show center.
