The celebrations will center on the Tian’anmen Square in the heart of Beijing, and Chang’an Avenue, the capital’s main west-east thoroughfare, said Wang Yue, executive commander of the headquarters for civilians’ parade affairs of the 60th anniversary celebration in the Chinese capital.

According to Wang, immediately following a massive military parade, there will be a civilians’ parade comprising 36 formations and six performing groups involving about 100,000 citizens and 60 floats. It is complemented by 80,000 primary and middle school students in the Tian’anmen Square forming background patterns.

More than 4,000 performers, including a 2,400 strong chorus, will present a concert in the Tian’anmen Square, said Wang.

The civilians’ parade begins with a formation of honor guards holding high the National Flag of the New China.

The civilians’ parade will have three themes: ideology, achievements and future prospects, Wang said.
