- The Air Force Academy's Cadet Wing has formal parades planned Monday and Tuesday, as part of the Academy's pre-graduation activities.
Tuesday features the Class of 2013's Graduation Parade, 10 a.m., at Stillman Parade Field. Pre-parade events for Tuesday's parade begins at 9:30 a.m. and features performances by the Cadet Falconry Team at 9:45 a.m. and the Saber Drill Team at 9:55 a.m. This will be the last parade for the Class of 2013, as they turn over command of the Cadet Wing to the Class of 2014.
The event is free, open to the public and tickets are not required. Seating is first come, first served.
Visitors should enter the Academy through the Academy's North Gate, at Exit 156B off I-25. Visitors are advised to arrive early, as parade attendance and vehicle traffic are typically very high. Vehicles entering the Academy are also subject to random searches, which, along with construction on I-25, could also delay traffic.
Parade parking will be at the Cadet Field House, where shuttle bus services will transport attendees to the parade field starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.
The public should not bring large bags and backpacks to the parade. Cameras, video cameras and binoculars are permitted, but attendees should be prepared to remove the camera lenses for security inspection.
