75th Anniversary of The North Carolina, Azalea Festival

Captured moments from the 75th Anniversary, NC Azalea Festival. Incredible views from Wilmington, NC that have never been seen before.

We are excited to announce that Children of Fallen Heroes (CFH) will be skydiving in Old Glory for the "Honoring Heroes Jump" presented by Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, into the 75th Anniversary of The North Carolina Azalea Festival.

The parachute demonstration will be in front of City Hall on Saturday, April 9th, 2022 at 9:20 AM. The national anthem is performed as CFH brings in Old Glory with a flyover by our good friends The Bandit Flight Team and the Super Stallions CH-53E.

Make sure that you get there early to watch this historic moment and capture it on camera. It will be the first Parachute demo in the history of downtown Wilmington, NC.

In supporting the “Children of Fallen Heroes” we have found that our vision, purpose, and every minute detail is critical in the healing process for our children. Surviving and thriving the loss of their “Hero” mother or father is our “no-fail mission” and we walk with them and their families until that mission is complete.

Established in 2015

Children of Fallen Heroes Retreat and Education programs are designed to create an escape from grief and expand the mind while having fun.
