The Opening Ceremony will begin promptly at 10:00 am with a rousing salute to our veterans and active duty personnel. A Marine Color Guard accompanied by some of America's finest will march south on Saginaw Street. At the same time, a procession of flags and military personnel will march north to the center of downtown Flint where the two groups will converge. A special ceremony is being planned to honor the men and women of the armed forces for their service and sacrifice. The program will include an Invocation, inspiring performances of the National Anthem and God Bless America by special guest artists, and two flybys of amazing military aircraft. BttB's honors those who protect and defend the freedoms we hold dear, past and present, those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and those who continue to answer the call. If you are interested in participating in the Opening Ceremony, please contact Dale Frey for more information.
