For the sake of argument, let’s say you and your family are staying here at Cherry Hill in the middle of May. You’ve seen the sights downtown, you’re a little burned out, and need something else to do.
Might I suggest the air show?
Friday, May 14th is open only to pre-selected school groups and Department of Defense personnel. The 15th and 16th are open to the general public. Andrews AFB is not far from Cherry Hill Park, and there is parking at FedEx Field (Home of the Washington Redskins) with a short shuttle bus ride to the air show. Performers will include the Blue Angels, Golden Knights, the F-22 Raptor and AV-8B Harrier jets, and many more will be on static display, including the F-15, P-51, B-25 and much more. There’s plenty to eat and drink, and various freebies (The Spam-mobile a few years ago was surprisingly good!)
So come on out, see some awesome planes in action and on display, bring your cameras, and have a good time! It’s a great family activity, and very convenient to CHP!
