Here is more information from JONES BEACH website:
The Blue Angels suspended air shows in 2013 because of federal budget cuts, known as the budget sequestration. The sequestration remains in effect, but the Angels have booked 65 shows in 34 U.S. locations, according to a press release. "Our peformances provide a unique opportunity to inspire millions to connect with and support our service members, and we are looking forward to an exciting 2014 season," said Blue Angels' commanding officer and flight leader Commander Thomas Frosch.
Get there early. In the past, this show has easily seen 200,000 people fill up the beach on a single day. It is not unusual for the parking lots to be filled by 11:00am (if not earlier). When this happens, the parkways are closed and people are turned away. So, it is probably a good idea to arrive before 10:00am, or as early as reasonably possible.
SUNSCREEN. Bring it. You will be in the sun for over five hours. Trust me, you will need plenty of it.
BAGS, BACKPACKS, AND COOLERS ARE OK (this is a beach you know), but keep in mind THEY WILL BE SEARCHED so don't bring too much stuff along with you. It will also get crowded near show-center, and extra baggage could make movement difficult. There is a nice fast-food style restaurant on the East end of the beach, and refreshment vendors will be located along the boardwalk. If you want to keep costs low, you may want to bring along your own drinks and snacks. There will be no bleachers or seating of any sort (with the exception of the VIP Chalets that require a separate entry fee purchased before the show), so bring a blanket to sit on, or a foldable chair. If you plan on sitting close to the water, you might want to bring a jacket or long-sleeved shirt. Even though the air temperature may be warm, the waters will still be cold and can cause the area right by the shoreline to be surprisingly chilly.
EARPLUGS are suggested for the younger viewers (under 3 years), but aren't a bad idea for some of the grown-up viewers as well. The jets can get loud, and you might get stuck next to some annoying guy who won't shut up about his cats.
Photography is always fun at an air show, but there are several things to keep in mind, and you should know the limits of your camera. Even though the planes will be close, they will still be far enough away that you will need a decent amount of zoom. The beach faces South, directly into the sun, so most everything will be backlit all day. Also, the air tends to get quite hazy, making it difficult to get a crisp shot. Don't let these handicaps prevent you from bringing your camera, however. You never know what kind of moments you will be able to capture.
KITES ARE PROHIBITED. They can easily distract the performers, and that could result in some rather nasty stuff. Please leave these flying machines at home.
NO PETS. Of course, this excludes animals that aid the handicapped. Unless that animal happens to be a ferret, and if you are using a ferret to lead you around everywhere, you will probably have trouble getting to the show in the first place.
May 24 & 25, 2014 Airshow commences at 10:00 a.m. Airshow concludes at 3:00 p.m.
WE GOING BOTH DAYS.
Arrive early, Glasses,Sunscreen, Bring lunch, water, hat, suntan lotion. Old shoes or slippers are a good idea because we will be walking on Broadwalk.
