D.C. residents have three more chances to see the U.S. Army’s Spirit of America show for free at the D.C. Armory before it moves on to Fairfax.

The Spirit of America, a performance that traces the history of the U.S. military from the Revolutionary War to today, had not been performed in Washington in four years when it debuted on Thursday. The three remaining performances will be held at 7:30 tonight, and Saturday at 2 and 7:30 p.m. at the Armory at 2001 East Capitol St. SE.

The two-hour show includes traditional military music and marches as well as reenactments of scenes from past wars. The performers are active-duty soldiers from the Army’s ceremonial units.

Doors for the show open 90 minutes before show start times. No tickets are required, but all seats are first-come-first-served. The U.S. Army Military District of Washington, which is sponsoring the show, invite people of all ages, though they warn that the reenactments include loud simulated gunfire.

After Saturday, the performance will move to EagleBank Arena in Fairfax where shows will be held next Friday and Saturday.
