Empowering Professionals: My son and I at the Salinas International Air Show

My son and I at the Salinas International Air Show

Chris Alston

I go every year...  The Salinas International Air Show, that is of course in Salinas California. 

It is kind of North West of Monterey and about 1 hour South of Silicon Valley.

We usually get the Navy's Blue Angels, or the Air Force's Thunderbirds (like this year), or the Patriots and sometimes the Canadian SnowBirds.

There i always a wide range of things to see and do.  From Monster Trucks, to acrobatic planes of the past and present.

If you are ever planning on going next year, I would arrive early and spend the day going through all the planes and exhibits.  Wear sunblock, and don't forget to thank our service men and women for what they do!

Chris, this sounds like a fun day for father and son.  I saw the Blue Angels in Hawaii two years ago.  Awesome!

Chris - I think an air show must be the perfect arena for a father and son to get into a little male bonding!  That's an adorable picture of the two of you!

Chris, Your son is adorable and the father son outing so such a great thing to do. He will remember what a great dad you have always been. You should plan to bring him to LA this winter to see the space shuttlenin LA.
