China has held 14 military parades since the establishment of the People's Republic of China. In 1999 and 2009, grand military parades were held to celebrate the country's 50th and 60th founding anniversary.

It is an international convention to hold a parade to mark the victory day. France, Russia, and the United States are good examples of countries that do so.

France invited top leaders of the United Kingdom, Russia, the United States and others to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Normandy Landing, a watershed battle in WWII.

Russia also held a parade on May 9 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the World Anti-Fascist War in Moscow's Red Square.
