The Navy Blue Angels flight team will return to Seattle's Seafair celebration next summer with air shows over Lake Washington during the hydroplane races on the first weekend in August.

The military canceled the Blue Angels' show this past summer because of forced budget cuts.

The Seafair organization said the Blue Angels announced their schedule Tuesday at a convention in Las Vegas. The squadron also plans to perform in Seattle at the 2015 Seafair.
