Tuesday Sunset Parade


Tuesday 27 June 7:00 PM – Sunset


Since September 1956, marching and musical units from Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., have been paying tribute to those whose “Uncommon valor was a common virtue” by presenting Sunset Parades in Washington, D.C. The parade will be held at the Marine Corps War Memorial. There will not be traditional seating available, and spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Transportation to and from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center will be available to expo attendees. Attendance and transportation are free, but you must register to reserve your space. For more information, please review the official parade website.

Shuttles will leave every 30 minutes from L Street starting at 4:00 PM with the last bus at 6:30 PM. You may also take the Metro Blue line from Metro Center to/from Arlington Cemetery.
