Going to Washington, D.C. over the weekend, we visited the parade of a picture perfect night. The marching band was sensational and the parade was very easy to watch and the marines were very coordinated. The uniforms were spectacular.

If you can't make a Tuesday night parade but know you'll be in DC on a Friday, request seats for the Friday night parade at 8th & I Sts SE. There is a website...it's free. Both are dramatic performances but in different ways.

It ranged from dresses and blazers to shorts and sneakers. It was great, though.
