It's Mother's Day weekend, and there's plenty to do around town.

The annual Fort Lauderdale Air Show is back, with flight performances and events throughout the weekend.

  • Saturday and Sunday, 11am–3pm, at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park
  • Setting up chairs on the street is prohibited, but spectators can buy a ticket to the Drop Zone premium beach area, starting at $26 for children, or find a public location on the beach.

This is your last chance to secure a ticket to tour a U.S. Navy ship during Fleet Week Miami. Tickets for Sunday's free tours launch online Friday morning, but they are going fast.

  • The tours will be held from 9am–11am and from 1pm–4pm.
  • Parking is available at PortMiami.
  • Here's the full Fleet Week schedule, including events on Saturday.

Mother's Day celebrations: For the last-minute planners, Miami New Times curated a list of restaurants and events to browse.

  • If art is more the vibe for you and mom, OCISLY Ceramics is hosting a full day of events in the garden, including painting, wheel throwing and sculpting classes. Tickets range from $45–$60.
