Fiesta Bowl Parade

December 17 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Fiesta Bowl Parade 2018

Once again, Fighter Country Foundation is sponsoring the American Fly balloon in the 2022 Fiesta Bowl Parade. Join your fellow Blue Blazers, Fighter Country Foundation volunteers and Luke AFB military members as we march 1.8 miles down Central Avenue handing out American flags and escorting the American Flag balloon in the Fiesta Bowl Parade. Don’t miss this annual BBS favorite event!

Waiver: Please click the link below and fill out your waiver to walk in the parade.

Showtime: (to the balloon staging area): Please be at the balloon no later than 8:00am on Saturday, December 17th.  Please take traffic and the time it will take you to shuttle from where you park into account (there is almost always a 30-45 minute wait for the shuttle).  The parade starts promptly at 10:00 and it will not wait for us.

Attire: Please wear your Blue Blazer; dress warm as it can be chilly as we wait for the parade to start and wear comfortable shoes. The parade route is just under 2 miles long.

Balloon Marshals: We’ll need 15-20 Blue Blazers to guide the American Flag balloon and others will hand out American flags.

Gloves: If you have gloves, bring them.  It’s helpful when you’re pulling on the rope to marshal the balloon.

Group Photo: Traditionally we all get together at the end of the parade route for a group photo with the Airmen in front of the balloon.  We have to be quick, however, as the parade staff will want to deflate the balloon once we’re done.

After the Parade: A group of Blue Blazers are planning to meet at The Original Hamburger Works (2801 N. 15th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85007) after the parade for lunch for anyone who is interested.
