The theme for this year's show will be "A Salute to Those Who Serve" according to the official website This year's Thunder Over The Boardwalk will also feature the return of U.S. Airforce Thunderbirds who will serve again as the headline act.

The Thunderbirds will also unveil a brand new demonstration during their performance for the first time in close to 40 years. The new demonstration, which will take place as high as 15,000 feet over the boardwalk, will put emotion and entertainment in the spotlight.
