Sunset March is a daily tribute to the Allied soldiers who fought for the liberation of The Netherlands, especially to those soldiers who lost their lives. The new Nijmegen city bridge "De Oversteek" [The Crossing] was constructed close to the area where members of the US 82nd Airborne Division crossed the river Waal on 20 September 1944. 48 Allied soldiers lost their lives during this ‘Waal Crossing’. The recently completed bridge has been installed with 48 pairs of exceptional street lights. At sunset these sets of street lights are lit up pair by pair at a slow marching pace. Each night at sunset, a military veteran walks the Sunset March. As the lights are turned on, the veteran walks along in pace with the lights being lit. Any veteran can participate as "Veteran of the Day". If you are interested in participating as Veteran of the Day, please check the calendar on our website and subscribe. All others who are interested to join do not need to subscribe.
