Blue Angels returning for next year’s Fleet Week
October 23, 2013, 05:00 AM

The Blue Angels air show is set to return to San Francisco next year as part of the city’s annual Fleet Week celebration, U.S. Navy officials announced.

The Navy’s precision flight demonstration team will be performing over the Bay on Oct. 11 and 12, 2014. The Blue Angels had to cancel all of their 2013 shows because of the federal sequestration cuts.

San Francisco’s Fleet Week typically features the air show, a Navy Parade of Ships, and disaster drills by local, state and federal first responders.

All were canceled this year because of the budget cuts, and owners of waterfront shops and restaurants expressed disappointment that the crowds they depend on for business during Fleet Week didn’t show up.
