Hard to describe but makes you oh so proud to be an American! A must during parade/summer season in DC. It is something you will not forget. Semper Fi!

“Awesome”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

If you can get tickets, this is must.
So moving, so impressive.
Great event for the whole family. We took our 5 year old daughter; we were nervous that she'd fidget, but she had a great time.

“Impressive!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great evening entertainment. Amazed at the snappy marching and precision! Happens on Tuesday nights during the summer. Park at the Arlington Cemetery visitors parking and ride a shuttle bus over to memorial and back. Bring a lawnchair or blanket and arrive early for a good spot.

“Get there an hour early for a good viewing spot.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We arrived 1hr and 10 minutes early and were able to sit at the very front under the trees. Bring a blanket and a picnic-it's a nice relaxing time. The Marines were walking around greeting guests and talking to visitors before and after the program. After it concluded, individual Marines walking around the Memorial and posed with kids for photos.

Overall, great experience that I would highly recommend. It makes me proud of our US Marine Corps. Semper Fi!

“Sunset parade near 4th of July”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Marine Corp Sunset Parade was a real treat to see. The Iwo Jima Memorial in the background, the Bugle Corp band just booming out song after song. Then silent drill team performed with such precision. It was a treat attending with my two trombone enthusiasts that offered many insights to the band and the practice that was required to make it look so easy. Unfortunately no trombones, they were replace with marching baritones but it was still fun to watch and listen to. Thanks to our Marine corp in the best uniforms in the military.
