The week has been full of celebrations at the Air Force Academy as Wednesday's graduation approaches.

Graduating cadets were also honored during Monday's Organizational Awards Parade. Squadrons who excelled in the areas of leadership, military performance, academics and athletics were recognized. The Saber Drill Team and the Cadet Falconry Team performed; you can view some of that performance by clicking play on the video above.

Tuesday's Event

Pre-parade events for Tuesday begin at 9:30 a.m. and features additional performances by the Cadet Falconry Team at 9:45 a.m. and the Saber Drill Team at 9:55 a.m. The parade begins at Stillman Parade Field at 10 a.m.

Parking & Security

The events are free and open to the public, but make sure to go early as seating is first come, first served, and traffic may become heavy because of the event and construction on I-25.

When you arrive at the Academy, bear in mind that your vehicle is subject to random searches. You are asked not to bring any large bags or backpacks; cameras, video cameras and binoculars are allowed but attendees are warned to be prepared to remove any camera lenses for security inspections.

Shuttle buses will provide transportation from the Cadet Field House to the parade field beginning at 7 a.m.
