west of the Mississippi returns August 17-19
to the Old West mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado.
- The 31st ANNUAL POW/MIA RECOGNITION RIDE will stage at the Woodland Park High School on Saturday morning. What has become “Colorado’s largest procession of motorcycles” will roll through the mountains under police escort and arrive in style to the cheering supporters at the Rally.
For those of you not going on the Recognition Ride, we suggest that you get out on Bennett Avenue early and get a good spot to watch the 26th ANNUAL VETERANS PARADE The parade kicks off on the east end of Bennett Avenue at approximately 10:00 am Saturday morning.
- Two VETERANS / MILITARY REMEMBRANCE CEREMONIES will be part of this year’s Rally. The first is the 31st annual POW/MIA Remembrance Ceremony in Cripple Creek’s City Park at noon on Saturday. This is the centerpiece of Salute to American Veterans Rally and everyone is encouraged to attend. The second will take place Sunday at 1:00 pm at Cripple Creek’s War Memorial on the west end of town near the Mt. Pisgah Cemetery . At this important service, the names of servicemen killed in the last year from the local area who were killed in action over the past 12 months will be added to the Memorial.
