Traverse City: Blue Angels' next show is in 2014

From staff reports

TRAVERSE CITY — The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to the National Cherry Festival in 2014, National Cherry Festival officials have learned.

The announcement was made during the annual Air Show Convention this week, according to a Cherry Festival press release. The Navy's flight demonstration team will be in town July 5 and 6, 20114. It will mark their 12th festival performance.

Spokeswoman Susan Wilcox Olson said the Blue Angels didn't come to Traverse City this year because of a conflict with a War of 1812 celebration in which they participated.

"The Blues now release their show schedule two years in advance," she said. "So we were thrilled to learn we are back on their rotation schedule."
