I am looking for information about the Acceptance Parade (Aug. 4th I believe)- I would love to see my son -however, I will be working. I am planning on sending a friend of my son's to attend the event and take some pictures for me. Friend will be traveling by air and we'll need to arrange transportation to and from the Academy- (18 and too young to rent a car) any advice? Parade is schedule for the morning - What is the rest of the day like? Will they have a chance to talk? Is this an event not to be missed?
