My mom booked a trip to Colorado for August 4th-7th in order to watch the acceptance day parade. I've seen a couple places that families only get to meet with cadets for about an hour after the parade, is this true? We have family in Colorado so it will just be a little vacation for my parents but I was just wondering how much I would be able to see them. And my girlfriend won't be able to come to parents weekend because she has a figure skating competition.. would it be worth it for her to come with for acceptance day? Would I have any weekend opportunities between acceptance day and Thanksgiving leave to fly home a day or two or for her to come out and visit me? Thanks!
