The event takes place on Friday, August 17th from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The “Thunder Over The Boardwalk” will bring out thousands of spectators to enjoy dazzling displays from the United States Airforce Thunderbirds and the U.S. Army Golden Knights. A variety of volunteer positions are available.

Whether you’re a fan, a veteran or someone interested in helping out, volunteering has many benefits, says Ryan Watkins, who heads the Junior Chamber of Commerce for the Atlantic City area. She says “you get a front row seat to all the action. Because the event takes place on the beach, you have a great view of the planes doing their dazzling tricks.”

The schedule remains up to you, depending on what you can do. They have several spots still open. Watkins explains “usually we have about 120 people to help out. This year, so far, we have only about 75. There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved. It’s an experience of a lifetime and many people remember it forever.”

To find out more or to register, e-mail or contact Elisa Monroe, director of Member Events for the Greater Atlantic City Chamber at 609-345-4524 extension 12 or e-mail

Along with performances and demonstrations by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the U.S. Army Golden Knights, past airshow demonstrations and flybys have included the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Air National Guard and civilian acts. A full list of performers and a schedule of events will be released at a later date.
