The two-hour parade saw thousands of people from all walks of life, including soldiers, workers, peasants and students, march through the square, waving flowers and shouting slogans such as "Long live supreme leader Kim."

Some vehicles rolled through with banners, paying homage to the massive statues of the leaders and showcasing the achievements of the past 70 years.

Some military weapons, including rockets and tanks, were also demonstrated in the parade. But the scale was not as big as expected and long-range missiles were not displayed.

The parade was the first of its kind after the DPRK-South Korea and the DPRK-US summits were held successively and the situation on the Korean Peninsula entered a state of dialogue.

The celebrations began Saturday evening with a concert at the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium.
