Blue Star Families Night at the Sunset Parade

Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

6:00 – 8:00 PM ET

U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial

Arlington, VA 22209

The Marine Corps Sunset Parade is a one-hour performance featuring the music of “The Commandant’s Own,” The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, and precision drill by the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. The performance is set in the shadow of the 32-foot high figures of the United States Marine Corps War Memorial.

Blue Star Families and Rob Wilkins, a member of The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition (PCSFN) invite 15-20 military kids ages 7-18 to join us on July 27th for a very special opportunity to participate in and watch the Sunset Parade Performance.

Registered participants will participate in a pre-performance workout and then join Blue Star Families as a group to watch the parade. Group photos featuring Marines and the backdrop of the Memorial will conclude the evening.

Parents and younger children are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets and watch the performance from the lawn of the Memorial grounds. Picnics are welcome. Bring your own or grab take-out from one of the many Roslyn Restaurants only steps from the Memorial.
