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.
