NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Marine Week is coming to Nashville this week, and everyone has a backstage pass.

More than 80 free events will be offered throughout Music City encompassing the theme of "Community, Country and Corps."

Country music star Darryl Worley will kick off the week with a musical performance at Public Square on Wednesday at 6 p.m. along with a special presentation by Mayor Megan Barry.

The public will have opportunities throughout the week to experience live demonstrations, parades and even work out with real Marines.

Some of the events included in Marine Week Nashville are:

  • Climb aboard Marine Corps' aircraft and ground equipment displayed throughout downtown
  • Attend Marine Corps martial arts and military working dog demonstrations
  • Work out alongside Marines during physical fitness demonstrations
  • Listen to the Marine Band Sand Diego and watch the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon

The public is invited to join the Marines and community leaders at War Memorial Plaza at 9 a.m. on Sept. 11 for a special remembrance ceremony honoring the anniversary of the attacks in 2001.

The Marines will then conduct a Marine Air-Ground Task Force demonstration at Riverfront Park.

Following the demonstration, the Marines will support the Tennessee Titans from the field and the skies at Nissan Stadium as they take on the Minnesota Vikings in their season opener.
