This Friday night event is worth seeing. The Marine Band and the silent drill team are a pleasure to watch. The precision marching and rifle swapping require skills that few can match.
Tickets are obtained in advance.

Wonderful evening....these young marines have so much talent and discipline. A must for everyone! They perform Friday nites only in the summer. Our second visit and was still as inspiring as last year's performance.

As a former Marine (1981-1988), I still get chills and tears watching the Silent Drill Team go through their routine. This parade exemplifies all that the Marines are...The BEST!!

I give 5 stars to the Marines and 0 stars to the city of Arlington. The Whole evening was inspirational with my wife, 2 young sons and father, a Vietnam Veteran. The Honor Guard was phenomenal. That was until the run-in with the Arlington Parking Brigade. We parked at Arlington National Cemetery and to save my family the long walk back, I went to get the car and bring it to them. By the time I got back, the Parade was over and people were filing out. My family was waiting for me at the curb and as they were loading in, a "Meter Maid" came up and gave me a $50 ticket. Apparently Arlington is hard up for money and is targeting families packing up after attending a great, patriotic event.
