I booked this online (request a seat) and was pleased when I got an email saying that I had a seat.
The marine corp guys and girls were great and spent time mingling with the crowd. Beware that there is a long wait for the show to start as they ask you to get there early, but don't start until 8.45, though we had a weather hiccup (forecasted thunder storms) so the show was temporarily postponed until the weather cleared; some people chose to leave but i stayed and was pleased that they got started about 30mins later.
The main focus of the show the marine band which were great, but not what I came for - I would like to have seen more of the A & B troops and their marching and gun drills.
The silent drill team was amazing - awesome display and it's simply amazing what they can do. They even recovered elegantly after making one small mistake.
Well worth the visit, even for someone not from USA.
