Posted at 5:11 PM, Mar 18, 2016

The Tampa Bay AirFest kicks off this weekend at MacDill Air Force Base. 

The air show brings in hundreds of thousands of people into the base area to watch a number of acts and air entertainment. 

The gates open at 8:00 a.m. with aerial performances at 11:15 a.m.

The best part is admission and parking are free.

If you're looking for areas to watch the show without being stuck in traffic, we recommend:

  • Gadsden Park off MacDill Avenue,
  • Balast Point Park
  • Picnic Island Park.
