In addition to seeing The Thunderbirds at Cocoa Beach on April 15th thru 16th, you can drive a bit to Ft. Lauderdale to see the Blue Angels on April 28th thru 29th. I went to both air shows a few years ago as well as one in Melbourne. Great time for me relaxing on the beach watching the jets above.
See our comprehensive schedule of nearly 20 air shows and hot air balloon festivals in Florida for 2023 and 2024 including USAF Thunderbirds and USN Blue Angels
One of my favorite events is Surfing Santas on Christmas Eve outside Coconuts in Cocoa Beach. There could be hundreds of Santas in the water. I love it.
Surfing Santas is an annual Cocoa Beach tradition that brings hundreds of surfers dressed up as Santa. Watch them ride in on the waves and kick off your holiday, beach-side, at this free event.
