Sure, the Oshkosh Airshow is super and all, but it doesn't have the water action of Chicago's annual Air & Water Show, taking place this weekend over the northshore beaches. Viewing is best done from the vicinity of North Avenue Beach and Oak Street Beach. Performers include the F/A-18 Hornets of the US Navy Blue Angels, parachute teams from both the Army—the Golden Knights—and the Navy—the Leap Frogs, Kirby Chambliss in the Red Bull Edge 540, and the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team.
Best of all, the event is free, earplugs and sunglasses optional.
Tickets to the Outside Lands Festival last weekend sold out, so if you missed that, don't worry because it's like every weekend is some sort of food fest. This weekend, it's La Cocina's Street Food Festival, featuring over 70 vendors selling their bits and bites for a few dollars. FunCheapSF has a little guide of what not to miss at the large event.
Entry is free at Folsom and 24th Street, though and food runs between $2-$8 per truck.
