Air Show Memorial Day Weekend 5/25 & 5/26 2013

Never seen the show, heard that parking and crowds will be epic. Is it worth my while to even trek out there if I'd like to do some fishing? Have a feeling I'd get washed out with the rain wind and crowds this weekend.

It is definitely worth going. I think you can bring coolers with food and drinks and I would recommend it as everything is usually expensive. We are always under the Bethpage Credit Union tent and they supply free food and drinks for the duration of the show, but if we didn't get all the perks, I would definitely not go every year.
Tonight I am attending a dinner with all the bigwigs and pilots at the Cradle of Aviation Museum. If I hear anything regarding tomorrow's schedule, I will post it up tonight. With those high winds and rain, they may trim the show down tomorrow.
If I were to guess right now, I would say Sunday would be the better of the two. Get there early! The lots fill up quick and the roads start backing up. You'll start seeing everyone just pulling over on Ocean Parkway and sitting by their cars. You don't want to do that.
If you just want to fish, maybe head down to RM.
