Salute to Veterans Memorial Day Weekend Celebration

A celebration of those who served and continue to serve.

The free annual two-day air show and parade is presented every Memorial Day Weekend by the Salute to Veterans Corporation. The free airshow, which is at the Columbia Regional Airport, showcases over 40 aircraft from WW! to the present on the tarmac and flying, plus USA, USAF, USN and USMC Demonstration Teams and aircraft. The Salute to Veterans Parade on Monday, Memorial Day, is ‘jump started’ by the USA and Canadian Forces Parachute Teams prior to the 165 units moving down Broadway. It includes veterans, bands, military reunion groups and Honored Military Guests, while the planes from the Airshow fly overhead to honor fallen comrades.
