We've seen several great bands, RI veterans of the attack on Iwo Jima and the Battle of the Bulge, and loads of politicians. There do seem to be long gaps with nothing in front of us due I think to commercial breaks in the TV coverage (we're seated directly across from the TV anchor pavilion).

Veterans play a major role in the parade...

as do politicians like Senators Whitehouse and Reed (l and r) and Congressman Lengevin (center)

Marching bands, drum corps, and performers from around the country come to the parade

Our usual seats give us a great view of the performers as well as the TV personalities on hand for the live broadcast
