Joint Service Drill Exhibition
Saturday, April 14th
12:00pm - 2:00pm
Arrive early to get the best views

"One of the Cherry Blossom Festival’s most popular events. Walk amongst the cherry trees along the Tidal Basin down to the Jefferson Memorial where this event takes place directly following the Cherry Blossom parade. This is a rare opportunity to see the Army, Marine, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard drill teams perform in the same place at the same time. Each drill team performs a 25 minute routine complete with daring, dangerous and exhilarating maneuvers which will be judged by this year’s panel. After the exhibition you will have the chance to meet with members of the drill teams and collect autographs."
