For those who are interested, the tentative time scheduled for the Thunderbirds practice on Friday is 10AM - 11AM.

It might be wise to get there early should this be the case. Of course, times are subject to change.
This confirmed?

You can check the NOTAMs or TFRs. They should give you specific times.

Yes, per road closure information posted on the web site. Keep in mind that extra road closures are in effect for the Thunderbirds practice due to their large aerobatic box (I believe it crosses Huntington at the west end) so they are particularly careful with stragglers in the area as they will stop the practice if anyone is in the box.
