The Greatest Show Above The Earth: The Air & Sea Show Returns To Miami Beach This Memorial Day Weekend

April 18, 2024

Prepare for an exhilarating Memorial Day Weekend as the Hyundai Air & Sea Show, known as "The Greatest Show Above the Earth," returns to the stunning shores of Miami Beach on May 25th and May 26th from 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. This free-to-the-public extravaganza promises a patriotic salute like no other, showcasing the valor, technology, and sheer power of the United States Military alongside our dedicated first responder agencies.

Mickey Markoff, Executive Producer of National Salute to America’s Heroes, says, “There is no better time than Memorial Day weekend to pay tribute to our Military, First Responders, and those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our freedom.”

The Hyundai Air & Sea Show is not just an event; it's an experience. As one of the largest gatherings of military equipment in the country, attendees will be treated to a spectacle of epic proportions. From United States Military Aerial Demonstrations to Cigarette Offshore Powerboat Racing Exhibitions, from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Drug Interdiction Exercises to Military Parachute Team Demonstrations, there's something for everyone at this family-friendly event.

But the excitement doesn't stop there. Following the Hyundai Air & Sea Show on Saturday, May 25th from 7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., attendees can revel in the Music Explosion Presented by Hyundai. With a lineup featuring a DJ, U.S. Army’s “As You Were” band, U.S. Air Force Drill Team, and The Miami Beach Classical Music Festival Orchestra playing a patriotic music concert along Ocean Drive, the entertainment is guaranteed to keep spirits soaring. As night falls, prepare to be dazzled by a breathtaking 3D Mapping Projection, illuminating Ocean Drive's iconic buildings with patriotic graphics, followed by a spectacular pyro parachute jump by the U.S. Army Golden Knights and the FRLA Fireworks Extravaganza presented by the Florida Restaurant Lodging Association.

Expanding over 5-city blocks, the Florida Power & Light Patriot Display Village offers an interactive experience like no other. From tanks and helicopters to rifle ranges and tactical gear, visitors can immerse themselves in the world of the Armed Forces. The Action Zone, featuring motocross performances by Monster Energy Keith Sayer’s FMX (Freestyle Motocross) Demonstration Team and USA Boxing Exhibitions, promises adrenaline-pumping excitement for all.

For the younger audience, the Nicklaus Children's Hospital Kids Zone offers a Stay Fit Aviation-Themed Fun Zone with activities including a rock-climbing wall, bungee jumping, and inflatables.

Don’t miss the all-new Mission BBQ Food Court which will also feature BurgerFi, Bolay, and more.

In addition to the live festivities, the National Salute to America's Heroes, presented by Hyundai, will air two nationally syndicated television specials. The "Gold Star Tribute" honors the sacrifices of our fallen heroes, while the "Highlights Television Special" captures all the thrilling moments of the Hyundai Air & Sea Show.
