Fleet Weekend All day, October 9-11
Come to Ghirardelli Square for the best view of the Blue Angels air show. Live music and entertainment for the whole family in the plazas throughout the weekend.

Fleet Week is an annual event here in San Francisco. The Blue Angels perform air acrobatics and there are several Navy ships docked along the Embarcadero during this event. Though I always try to avoid this event because of the crowds and message it sends, I will try and get photos and video of the Blue Angels and parade of ships.
If you are in the area, Ghirardelli Square and aquatic park are the best areas to see the Blue Angels. Pier 39 is a madhouse during this event so I would suggest steering clear of that area. The Golden Gate Bridge and areas surrounding the bridge are also great for viewing.
