The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds will pay White Rock a visit on the afternoon of Wednesday August 9, 2023 at 2:30PM. This is the rescheduled demonstration following the cancellation of Tuesday's planned visit which had to be postponed due to technical issues. 

The demonstration is expected to last approximately 5-10 minutes.

What:            CF Snowbirds Air Demonstration 
When:           Wednesday August 9, 2023, 2:30 p.m.
Where:          White Rock Promenade above Semiahmoo Bay

“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.
