Default US military displays

does the US military/navy have marching displays or similar at the White House ? Would this occur at Pennsylvania Avenue ?
I am reading about how many cities use squares and large boulevards as displays of national power and often have uniformed displays in locations such as Tianaman Square in Beijing, The Mall outside Buckingham Palace. Many cities were designed with such layouts for this to happen.
I have not been able to find out where such displays happen in the US - if they happen at all...

Fleet Week - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia comes to mind.

Military airshows are another example. Best way to find those is to look at the schedules of the Portal Home Page and Blue Angels : Official Website since one or the other usually appears at major military airshows.

AFAIK, most of the displays by ground forces, like you described, happen on Army and Marine bases.

Ok thank you. Yes I was thinking about displays by ground troops.
