Can I attend?Yes, the public is invited to attend the largest multi-national event in the world unfold on Sicily Drop Zone located just outside Fort Bragg.
The public is invited to attend the main airborne operation on Friday, December 5th at 0700 and Saturday, December 6th. The first planes should be over the drop zone at 7:30 a.m. - but come a little earlier if you want to see Santa arrive on Saturday!
First and foremost you'll see Paratroopers from around the world conducting airborne operations and exchanging wings most of the day. Second, there are lots of activities on the drop zone including games, Santa, and food.
As with all airborne operations, the schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. .
