The procession consisting of brightly decorated platforms that represent different states starts from Presidential castle to the Gates of India. There are also orchestras, folk dancers, columns of pupils and scouts. However, the parade follows an official ceremony of arrival of the president and prime minister of India at Rajpath and military parade of the armies of garrison of the capital

As well, the theater performances, festivals of folk music and dances are coincided with this day. The peculiar epilogue to the celebration of Republic Day in the capital is the ceremony called as ‘Ringing-off signal’ where guardsmen of defense in historical uniform take part.

Before the sunset the army wind bands play but when sun descends behind the horizon, the music becomes quieter, and firework begins.
