Please be advised that the CF Snowbirds’ air demonstration planned in White Rock this afternoon has been postponed due to technical issues. We apologize for the short notice and are working to reschedule it.

The Snowbirds sign unveiling will proceed at 2PM just east of the pier entrance on the Promenade.

(updated August 8, 2023).

The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds will pay White Rock a visit on the afternoon of Tuesday August 8, 2023. This visit is in celebration of White Rock’s longstanding relationship with the Snowbirds who have performed above the pier many times over the years.

As a part of this visit, the City will be unveiling a commemorative Snowbirds sign on the White Rock Promenade in recognition of this longstanding relationship.

The community is invited to watch the Snowbirds demonstration, which is expected to last approximately 5-10 minutes, and attend the sign unveiling. Mayor Megan Knight and two Snowbird pilots will be in attendance and will provide remarks.

What:            CF Snowbirds Demonstration and Commemorative Sign Unveiling
When:           Tuesday August 8, 2023, 2 p.m.
Where:          White Rock Promenade at Memorial Park just east of the pier entrance

“We are really pleased to have the Snowbirds pay White Rock a visit again this summer,” said Mayor Megan Knight. “If you have never seen them fly, I encourage you to come out for this treat. It is truly a thrilling experience, and I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer afternoon.”

The CF Snowbirds, officially known as 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, are the Royal Canadian Air Force aerobatics flight demonstration team. The team is based near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. The Snowbirds consider the skies above White Rock to be ideal for air demonstrations as the Pier provides a perfect reference point for the pilots when performing above White Rock and Semiahmoo Bay. Snowbird pilots train rigorously for dozens of annual performances across North America which include up to 50 different formations and maneuvers at speeds of 185 to 590 kilometers per hour.
