All cadets and their parents are invited to the 403 Wing of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association located at 1420 Lougar Avenue (building shared with the Royal Canadian Naval Association) after the parade. Dress in full dress uniform: shirt, tie, jacket, medals et al (no accoutrements (lanyards, white belts, etc)), but be prepared to remove the jacket and tie if it’s too hot (wear your rank slip-ons on your clean, ironed shirts!) Those who don’t have a full uniform to wear are asked to wear clean dark pants, a white collared shirt and clean, comfortable shoes.
