Approximately 1,000 fifth-grade, flag-carrying students from various Southern California schools will be participating in the 20-minute ceremony to be held in Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A. This pageant will be a simultaneous, nationwide school tribute organized by Celebration U.S.A., a private citizen's organization.
 The ceremony consists of the Air Force Color Guard, the singing of the National Anthem and a reading of the Pledge of Allegiance, interspersed with definition and meaning of key words and phrases.
 The Pledge of Allegiance was written by Francis Bellamy in 1892 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' voyage to America in 1492.
