If you have never seen the VMI Full Dress Cadet Parade, you need to add it to your things to do in 2015. Starting on Friday, February 6, and for most Fridays in February and April( see the complete schedule here ) , you can witness a spectacle seen only in a few places. Starting around 4:30 in the afternoon, on the Parade Grounds of the Virginia Military Institute, this truly patriotic event is a unique Lexington experience.
While on campus, make it a point to visit the VMI Museum. Preserving the history of the Institute, the museum is full of interesting artifacts about life on campus. And don’t miss the firearms exhibit…it is something to behold.
