On Saturday, March 19, a flyover, provided by Wings of Flight Foundation out of Falcon Field, will take place at 12 PM. The planes will fly over Cave Creek Road headed west and then turn around and head east; all part of a patriotic salute to veterans as part of American Legion Post 34’s 75th anniversary.
Residents and visitors also can watch the rodeo parade beginning at 9 AM (while enjoying breakfast burritos from 8-10 am) at the Post, followed by two USO-type shows at 1 and 3 pm performed by the Manhattan Dolls. Music follows at the Post from 4-7 pm.
