State Road A1A will be closed from just North of the Sunrise Blvd intersection to NE 19th Street on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department will be setting up a checkpoint at NE 19th Street and only local vehicle traffic will be permitted south of the checkpoint. Pedestrian traffic will be permitted for spectators to view the air show from the beach area from NE 16th Court to NE 19th Street.  The intersection of Sunrise Blvd and State Road A1A will remain open to vehicle traffic throughout the weekend with no closings.  Vehicle traffic will be heavy during the weekend of the event on May 5-6 so it is strongly advised to avoid this intersection while the air show is taking place.

    Do you think the jets can be heard 13 miles away (Lauderdale by the Sea) during a beach wedding??? What time is the show completely over? We are thinking about a 5:00 wedding
