Beijing has mobilized 850,000 residents to serve as volunteers and another 400,000 as traffic wardens to help police ensure security during the parade.
Volunteers wearing red hats and red armbands can be seen sitting on camp chairs at every 100-meter-section of the North Road of the East 3rd Ring in Chaoyang district.
