Baltimore will be hosting its’ first air show as part of the Star Spangled Sailabration June 13-19, 2012.

The Star Spangled Sailabration revolves around 40 tall ships coming into the Inner Harbor, beginning the National launch of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812! You will be able to have free tours of the tall ships, Harborfront activities, and the premiere of a new song by Philip Glass, the “Overture of 2012.”

The celebration coincides with Flag Day, which is June 14.

The Blue Angels will be heading the Baltimore Air Show, which should be both Saturday & Sunday afternoons, June 16 & 17. The time is currently TBD. There will be a concert and fireworks at Fort McHenry on Saturday night!

The Sailabration Village in the Inner Harbor is planning to showcase hands-on kids activities, international culinary goodies from the Tall Ship chefs, as well as performances from the countries’ embassies represented by the Tall Ships. More details are on the 200th Celebration site.

Don’t miss this exciting event in Downtown Baltimore this June. It should be spectacular!
