    Here's your original paragraph. We need to see many of these verbs in context to determine how they're used in the sentence.

    Please note that most, but not all of the transitive verbs are also action verbs. You should probably mark the transitive verbs as transitive.

    "Every November, bands from across the country visit New York City for the big Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even on cold days when winds or light rain might scare away spectators, the parade is on schedule. The crowd lines the parade route and will stay untill the last float has driven out of sight. As bands strut down Broadway, drum majors pound their drums, members of color guards rhythmically wave their flags, and baton twirlers toss their batons into the air and catch them as they twirl downward to the ground. Meanwhile, giant, colorful cartoon balloons like Betty Boop, Spiderman, and Bart Simpson, and other favorite characters are overhead. For young children, the parade remains an eventful experience and becomes a fond memory in their lives."

    visit = TR
    MIGHT = AUX
    scare = TR
    is = L
    lines = TR
    WILL = AUX
    stay = TR
    has driven = AUX (Two verbs, driven is not an auxiliary verb.)
    strut = ACT
    pound = ACT
    wave = ACT
    toss = ACT
    catch = ACT
    twirl = ACT
    are = L
    remains = L (Nope. Transitive)
    becomes = L
