Fleet Week's Sea & Air Parade

Fleet Week’s Sea and Air Parade

The Sea and Air Parade, brought back in 2016 after an eight-year gap, is the signature event of the Fleet Week celebration. The best of the U.S. military will be on display with cruisers, amphibious ships, destroyers, frigates, submarines, landing craft, Coast Guard Search and Rescue, and fly-overs of contemporary military and vintage military aircraft. The ideal location to view the action is at the end of Broadway Pier, but the parade can be seen all along the San Diego waterfront — Coronado, the Embarcadero, Harbor Island, and Shelter Island. Friday through Monday inside the Port Pavilion at Broadway Pier there will be a tech-laden “Innovation Zone” featuring robotics, interactive displays and vendor booths full of high-tech gear.

The “dirty reggae” rockers hit Belly Up

  • Belly Up Tavern, 143 S. Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach
  • 21+ / $20 - $35

Aggrolites

There’s a good reason why the Belly Up has hosted L.A.’s “dirty reggae” rockers the Aggrolites at least once a year since 2011. Their sound encompasses the widest array of classic rocksteady ska, from 1960s Kingston to 1970s London. It’s been around two years since their last release, a trio of singles including the instant set list staple “Aggro Reggae Party,” but rumor has it that they’ll debut new material from an upcoming full-length for the Solana Beach crowd on Sunday, October 15. The Skatalites open, a Jamaican reggae band with roots dating back over 50 years. Music, page 00.
