SRIA to release announcement on big event to replace air show cancelation

PENSACOLA BEACH  --  The Blue Angels Pensacola Beach Summer Air Show may be cancelled but another big event could be in the works.

The Santa Rosa Island Authority has an announcement today about the air show.
That's raising speculation that there could be a replacement.

Pensacola Beach may still get a big summer event! The SRIA will make an announcement regarding the air show at 4 pm today.

The announcement has many residents and visitors wondering what the SRIA has planned to replace the Blue Angel's performance.
   
Will it be a concert with a big name? A civilian airshow or something else? Here's what some local business owners had to say.

"We'll have to make a correction on the money they paid. We go up quite a bit in rate because the Blues are advertised to fly."

"The 4th, the Blue Angels, are the biggest events. Memorial Day is big time too so we need that. And I hope we get them back next year."
