Steamboat Springs' jam-packed Fourth of July holiday weekend will feature a special set of guests this year.

American Legion Post 44 announced Monday that this year's Fourth of July parade down Lincoln Avenue in downtown Steamboat will feature a flyover by a formation of Air Force F-16 jets.

The military jets are expected to roar over the parade route sometime after the 10 a.m. parade start on Sunday morning.

Local Legion officials said the flyover was organized as part of a larger tribute Independence Day tribute to local veterans, including those in extended care at the Doak Walker Care Center, as well as the men and women serving their country across the globe.
