It isn’t Seafair without the roar of the Blue Angels overhead. Or the headache of traffic and trying to remember when the I-90 floating bridge closes. Your best bet is to take the bad with the good in life, and enjoy the show.

Not only will the bridge be closed for the air show, but also during periods when the Blue Angels are practicing for the show. Following are the bridge closure times:

Thursday, August 5
9:45 am – 12:00 pm
1:15 pm – 2:30 pm

Friday, August 6
12:45 – 2:40

Saturday, August 7
12:45 pm – 2:40 pm

Sunday, August 7
12:45 pm – 2:40 pm

The Blue Angels fly at 1:40 on Friday, and at 1:30 on both Saturday and Sunday. But keep in mind that the Blue Angels demonstration isn’t the only flying fun going on during that weekend. The Boeing Air Show also features stunt planes, other U.S. Navy planes and an old Bearcat. Not all of the flying demonstration necessitate the closing of the bridge, so check out the full air show and hydroplane schedule to see who is flying what and when.
