Over 5,000 school children from all over the Coastal Bend will invade Javelina Stadium early Friday, March 28. That invasion will be followed by music, cheerleaders, a parachute drop, aircraft flybys, members of the Blue Angels and loads of fun.

Officials at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will host the Wings Over South Texas 2014 Pep Rally beginning at 9:30 a.m. Weather permitting, a parachute jump team will get the pep rally off with the bang provided by Old Smokey, the cannon fired by the university’s Javelina Battalion of the ROTC.

As students from around the area begin arriving at Javelina Stadium, they will be entertained by Dr. Jeff Rodriguez and his remote control aircraft. Several high school bands and cheer teams will be on hand to get the crowd excited.

Dr. Steven Tallant, university president, will welcome the students and Capt. Christopher Misner will introduce members of the Blue Angels and their crew.

Beginning at about 10:30 a.m., several planes, including a B-25 Mitchell bomber and Andrew Wright in the Carbon Fiber G202, will conduct flybys.

Many of the school children will enjoy lunch at Javelina Stadium. Static displays from various law enforcement and military groups will be present for the students to check out after the show.

Javelina student athletes and members of the ROTC’s Javelina Battalion will accompany students from their buses into the bleachers.
