A fan of drums, bugles and precision marching? If so, you’ll love the free, 75-minute Even-

ing Parade performed by the Marines Friday nights through the end of the summer at the Marine Barracks Washington in Southeast.

Performers include “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band and the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon as well as Sgt. Chesty XIII, the official mascot of Marine Barracks Washington.

While free, guests are advised to reserve a space in advance of the performance, which starts at 8:45 p.m. Guests with reservations are admitted as early as 7:15 p.m.

The performance takes place at the historic barracks at the intersection of I and Eighth streets Southeast. Established in 1801, it is the oldest active post in the Marine Corps and is designated a National Historic Landmark.
