Training Center Cape May Scheduled To Hold Sunset Parade

Coast Guard Recruits march onto Training Center Cape May's Parade Field during a Sunset Parade Aug. 4

By Press Release

CAPE MAY – U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May is scheduled to host a Sunset Parade in honor of the United Services Organizations at the Training Center July 1 at 7:49 p.m.
Sunset Parades are military displays of marching troops and the Coast Guard Recruit Precision Drill Team. More than 250 recruits will march in the parade and strike the National Ensign from the parade field at sunset.
The gates of Training Center Cape May will open at 6:40 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to use this time for security screening, parking and seating. Guests should plan on being seated by 7:40 p.m.
Sunset Parades are exciting and fun for the entire family; however, children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the ceremony. Security will close gate access at 7:40 p.m., so all visitors wishing to attend must be in before that time.
The Coast Guard Recruit Precision Drill Team will perform complex facing and drill movements, and dangerous rifle tossing routines. The group performs their complicated and precarious routines without verbal commands or cues.
Visitors should expect increased security screening for the event, and guests are not permitted to bring bags of any kind (with the exception of diaper bags or medical bags) to the seating area including purses, camera bags, and backpacks. Photography is permitted and encouraged, but cameras must be removed from their bag prior to arriving at the seating area. Guests are encouraged to leave bags in their vehicles during the parade. Also, visitors attending the event must have a valid, state-issued or government issued identification card in order to access the base.
In the event of inclement weather, visitors may call Training Center Cape May’s base information line at (609) 898-6700 the afternoon of the event for cancellation information.
