2021 AVT CELEBRATION

THE TRIBUTE –JULY 3, 2021
PEA HILL CREEK, LAKE GASTON

AVT’s longest-running program started in 1985 is our annual 2-Day Veteran tribute at Lake Gaston around independence day.  Approximately 3500 boats line Pea Hill Creek with an average of 5 people per boat (17,500 people) with another 6,000+ lining the shores for the show (24,000 people). The 2.5-hour event has a live band with over 100,000 Fireworks shots synchronized to patriotic music themes in a display to honor those having served our country. The event also kicks off with skydivers that bring in the flags for our honorees and a flyover.  The event is like no other and is a moving and respectful tribute.
