What to look for as North Korea celebrates the 70th anniversary of its founding

(CNN)For months, North Korea has been preparing a massive display of national unity and military might to mark the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding.

International journalists have been invited to watch a military parade as it weaves through the capital Pyongyang on Sunday, a torch-lit rally and the Mass Games, a highly choreographed event expected to involved hundreds of thousands of people.
The Mass Games are making a comeback after a five-year hiatus, for reasons that are unclear. It’s not a competitive event but a distinctly North Korean piece of performance art similar in size and scale to an Olympic opening ceremony.
