KINGSVILLE - Third and fourth grade students from Hillcrest Elementary got a special treat on Friday, March 23 as they got to travel to an invitation-only pep rally for the Blue Angels at Javelina Stadium in Kingsville.

Students were introduced to the Blue Angel pilots, watched the Marine Marching Band, and got to see videos of the Blue Angels in action in addition to many on the field activities.

This was the kick off to the weekend where the Blue Angels performed for over 100,000 people.

This annual event alternates from Kingsville to Corpus Christi.
