What a beautiful display. I always try to make time to see it. This time I brought visiting relatives and they absolutely loved it.

The second time we visited it all made more sense because a guide was nearby explaining the rituals. The music is great. They even played Stars and Stripes on July fourth.

The troops on parade do us proud every time, if your from out of town this is a must see. If your from Ottawa make it an annual family event

The changing of the guard was fantastic. The best place to stand is to the right when you're facing the Parliament building. The guards march right past you there. The bagpipes were sensational. It's probably not the best for young children as the ceremony goes for quite a while and there isn't much 'action'.

I've seen the Changing of the Guard a few times and love it each time. Great for kids and history and/or war buffs.
