This Memorial Day Weekend, Miami Beach hosted the ‘National Salute to America’s Heroes’ with an Air and Sea Show that featured jets, helicopters and planes and Catholic Health Services and Catholic Cemeteries were proud sponsors!
The day kicked off with the water demonstrations; powerboat races, jet ski freestyle and race exhibitions. Then the planes flew later that day.
Some of the demonstrations included a mid-air baton pass by the US Army Golden Knights, a squad of paratroopers famous for their black and gold parachutes and their uncannily precise landings. The US Coast Guard helicopters performed a mock Air Sea Rescue Demonstration and Customs Border Protection performed a drug interdiction exercise to let spectators witness a drug takedown with a high speed boat chase.
The event even had a Kid’s Zone, with fun activities for the little ones. So the kids don’t get lost in the crowd, organizers planed to have wristbands that kids can wear with their parents cellphone numbers. The USAF and US Army bands performed live during the event along with other musical acts and iHeart DJ’s mixed your favorite music.
