First thank you Kasey1945 for pointing me to the right direction. There are actually two parades, one on Tuesday nights at the Iwo Jima Memorial and the other on Friday nights at the Marine Barracks. I caught the Tuesday night one and it was impressive and would like to visit DC again to watch the Friday night one.
For the first half hour the marine band performed, marching to different types of music and the second half is the silent rifle drill. Like I said they were both very impressive and done in perfection. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and have a picnic but please clean up your mess. I can't believed people leave their trashes on the lawn, no respect.
You can either drive and leave your car at the Arlington Cemetery parking lot or take the Metro to Arlington Cemetery, a free shuttle will take you to Iwo Jima Memorial for the parade and back.
