The U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team was originally scheduled to be part of the show but canceled, due to a 'safety stand down' to honor Sergeant First Class Corey Hood.
There was also a Kids Zone with themed ounce houses and obstacle courses. People could sit in a cockpit of a fighter jet as well. There was also be a helicopter flight simulator, as well as booths for food and drink.
