A parade for graduating seniors at the Air Force Academy is planned for Tuesday morning.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. at Stillman Parade Field. This will be the last parade for the Class of 2012, as they turn over command of the Cadet Wing to the Class of 2013.
Before the parade there will be a falconry performance and airmanship demonstrations, which start at 9:30 a.m.
Both events are free, open to the public and tickets are not required. Seating is first come, first served. Visitors are advised to arrive early, as parade attendance and traffic are typically very high.
Parking will be available at the Cadet Field House, accessible through the Academy's North Gate, at Exit 156B off I-25. Shuttle bus service will be available to ferry attendees from the Cadet Field House to the parade field starting at 7 a.m. Handicapped-equipped vans will also run to and from the parade field.
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. The parade could be canceled if the weather doesn't cooperate.
