MDW’s Twilight Tattoo Season Begins

The U.S. Army Military District of Washington’s 2013 production of ‘Twilight Tattoo’ begins 1 May! The show is an hour-long military pageant featuring Soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) and The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own.” Audiences will experience a glimpse into American history through performances by the U.S. Army Blues, vocalists from the U.S. Army Band Downrange, the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, and the U.S. Army Drill Team.

The season opener features His Majesty the King’s Guard of Norway for a special joint performance. Performance will start at 6:40 p.m. His Majesty the Kings Guard, 3rd Company is the Norwegian Defense Force’s finest display unit. This parade unit is organized as an ordinary infantry company divided into three separate platoon units, the Military Band (60 men/women), the Ceremonial Band (30 men/women) and the Drill Team (40 men).

  1. Ahhh, good old Twilight Tattoo. I never watched it, but I marched in it for three years. HH6 tells me that they were good shows. We did it on the Ellipse, by the White House, but they used to do it at the Jefferson Monument. Lots of tourists would stop and ask if they could get their picture with us.

    1. The other big annual production by The Old Guard, called Spirit of America, was cut. They just announced it about a week ago.
