Ships paraded into San Francisco Bay, and the Navy’s Blue Angels took to the skies for San Francisco’s annual Fleet Week.

The celebration of the nation’s Navy and Coast Guard runs through Monday, with the big air shows this weekend. Here are some highlights:

Ship Tours: Want a glimpse of day-to-day shipboard life? Free ship tours are offered Oct. 7-9 at Piers 15-17, 30-32. 35 and 50. Check fleetweeksf.org for times, security rules.

Air shows: The Navy’s ever-popular Blue Angels and other pilots will perform noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (typically about 3 p.m. for the Angels). A million people combined are expected to watch the shows, so plan your transportation and viewing spots accordingly. Guaranteed waterfront seating runs $55-$75; VIP club seating, $250-$275. (Note: Because of construction, Treasure Island viewing locations and roads will be largely inaccessible during Fleet Week).

Viewing locations, parties: The Hotel Zephyr will host a tailgate viewing party on its parking deck in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. First come, first serve on Oct. 7 and 8, with parking rates set at $5 every half-hour.

High School Band Challenge: The events continue after Sunday’s air show. On Monday, the U.S. Marine Corps Band will kick off this annual event, with high schools competing for prize money for their music programs, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Golden Gate Park.
