100K Pack The Prom for the 108th Blackpool Air Show


Over 100,00 people attended the two-day Blackpool Air Show spectacular on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th August.


The 2017 Air Show - the very definition of a mainstay of the Blackpool events calendar with its 108th outing - saw a packed promenade from South Pier to North Pier and pavements ten persons deep across the resort were a regular sighting all weekend long. 


Closing each day at around 4pm, the RAF Red Arrows dazzled droves upon droves of residents and visitors alike with their ups and downs and round and rounds in the sky. 

Moving the Air Show from its usual Sunday and Monday to Saturday and Sunday meant that even more people got the opportunity to see this fantastic free entertainment. It was by far and away the busiest weekend we have witnessed in Blackpool this summer.

Testament to the pull of the event and its impact on the resort, big crowds lingered for quite some time after the aviation acrobatics too, as demonstrated with the below footage:



With the Air Show being such an established part of the events furniture in Blackpool, there really is only one question that remains...

Same again next year ?
