The Canadian Forces Snowbirds are scheduled to return to Semiahmoo Bay this year.

According to the Snowbirds schedule posted on the Royal Canadian Air Force website, the Birds are set to soar above White Rock on Aug. 12.

White Rock is one of three stops in this province, with the Snowbirds scheduled to perform July 29 above Vancouver and Aug. 7-9 over Abbotsford, as part of the annual air show.

The last time the Snowbirds came to White Rock was in 2017, when thousands of people gathered to watch the thrilling performance.

In one of the aerobatics displays, the flight crew drew a large heart in the sky with smoke. The symbolic routine was in recognition of the event’s co-founder Grace McCarthy, the former provincial cabinet minster, Office of the Order of Canada and Order of B.C. recipient, who passed away in May of that year.
