Activities

Public events

Republic Day is initially accompanied with an array of government-level events throughout the nation, although a considerable amount of the events are held at Daedo. The event mostly begins with speeches from both the Chancellor and the Premier, followed by commemorations of those who had participated in the November Revolution, marches of military bands and military parades along Emperor Seongjo Boulevard. The military parades on Republic Day are regarded as one of the two largest military parades in the nation held every year, alongside the one on National Day. On most occasions, all governmental events are held and monitored at the Plaza of Zhenian Unification: in events of rain and snow, events are either held in the plaza with a rain cover or are relocated completely indoors in the Daedo National Gymnasium, located around 5.6 kilometers southwest of the plaza.
