In 2014, Salute to Heroes, sponsored by Prescott Valley’s Sun Valley Tire, drew more than 8,000 people to the Prescott Valley Event Center. This year, Salute to Heroes has expanded to a two-day, don’t miss family event, with proceeds benefitting USVETS, an organization that provides programs and serices that fit the unique needs of veterans.
Starting on March 20, from 10 AM to 2 PM at Sun Valley Tire, 8337 E. State Route 69, people can meet racing legend Mario Andretti, sponsored by Firestone, for photos and autographs, view an IndyCar and two BIGFOOT monster trucks, and sit in an F-16 fighter cockpit. That night, the Veterans of Comedy will put on a show at the Event Center. Tickets for the comedy show are $15.
On Saturday, the festivities move to the Event Center at 1 PM, where first responders, military and veterans will host demonstrations and tours of emergency vehicles and equipment. Live bands, BIGFOOT and BMX displays, and a car show will all be a part of the day, which is free to the public. JACK 94.7 FM will do a live remote during the afternoon.
That evening at 6 PM the fun moves inside the Event Center with a BIGFOOT Monster Truck and BMX stunt show. Tickets for this show are $10 for adults, with kids under 12 free.
