The Memorial Day weekend event will include a special tribute to the U.S. military

The popular Hyundai Air & Sea Show will return to Miami Beach on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. Thousands of people are expected to attend the events on Miami’s beaches. As hotels and restaurants fill up, the city is implementing a comprehensive and coordinated major events plan to ensure the safety and enjoyment of visitors and residents.

“Miami Beach has a rich tradition with the military that dates back to World War II when half a million service members passed through what has been described as the ‘most beautiful boot camp in America,” Alina T. Hudak says, Miami Beach City Manager. “We are proud to salute all of the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for this great nation and to recognize our first responders who never fail to answer the call for service in our community.”
