Republic Day Parade 2022: From Largest Flypast To 16 Marching Contingent, What To Expect And Where To Watch It
I’m feeling very patriotic since Republic Day is just a few hours away (though I’m always feeling patriotic) and I guess most of you are feeling the same way. But I haven’t really celebrated this day or participated in a Republic Day parade ever since my school days. Like me, if you’re also feeling extra patriotic and miss being a part of a parade you can always watch the national Republic Day Parade of 2022 from the comfort of your home. And we all know that this parade is going to be a spectacle. So, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Time And Place Of The Republic Day Parade 2022
The Republic Day Parade 2022 will be held on January 26 at 10.30 am. Normally the parade starts from Raisana Hills and goes towards Rajpath, India Gate and end at the Red Fort but considering the Covid-19 pandemic, it will now end at the National Stadium.
What To Expect From It?
This year we will see 16 marching contingents, 25 different tableaux, 17 military bands, the largest flypast ever with a total of 75 aircraft among other things.
