Fireworks, A harbor full of ships and the Blue Angels = Star-Spangled Sailabration
The Star-Spangled Sailabration is the national launch of the War of 1812 Bicentennial. An international maritime and air festival in the Baltimore region and the Chesapeake Bay, this week-long event, June 13-19, will feature dozens of tall ships and naval war ships, the premiere of a new symphonic work, and the Star-Spangled Air Show featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
Throughout the celebration they’ll have free public ship tours, a Star-Spangled air show featuring the Blue Angels (see description below), a Star-Spangled aircraft display and festival, and more! See the full schedule here.
And at the Inner Harbor Village featuring the M&T Bank Kid’s Green Zone and Demo Kitchen you canjoy live performances by military bands and ensembles, cultural performances by visiting ships and their embassies, free hands-on children’s activities, and international culinary delights provided by chefs from visiting vessels.
For the first time ever, Baltimore will host an Air Show on June 16 and 17. A handful of military units will perform flight routines over the Middle Branch River, just south of Fort McHenry, culminating with a forty-five minute performance by the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels.
