It is two days of nonstop entertainment, but a few tips can help make the experience more pleasurable for guests.

Traffic in the areas surrounding Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is expected to be heavy. Golflinks Road will be closed from the Swan gate to the Craycroft gate.

During the open house the 355th Security Forces Squadron and Tucson Police Department would like to minimize traffic congestion and provide spectators and D-M personnel quick access to the base and parking areas. To help make this happen please be aware that all spectators coming to the show will have to pass through a security checkpoint prior to entering the base.

· Small women’s purses

· Strollers for small children

· Official service dogs
