As the Jan. 20 Inauguration Day approaches, there are rumors and plans flying around about protests and disruptions.
And there are the music artists who have reportedly turned down invitations from President-Elect Donald Trump to perform.
But then there are those who are coming out in force to show their support for the swearing in of the 45th President of the United States.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee has announced the lineup for the 8,000-participant parade, who will lead the new president with much pomp and circumstance from the steps of the Capitol after his swearing-in ceremony to the doors of the White House, where he will immediately get to work in his new home.
Now, the lineup for his inauguration parade has leaked, and the Trump transition committee wants everyone to participate.
“People from every corner of the country have expressed great interest in President-elect Trump’s inauguration and look forward to continuing a salute to our republic that spans more than two centuries,” Sara Armstrong, the committee’s CEO, said in a statement.
“As participants follow in the footsteps of our new president and vice president down Pennsylvania Avenue, they will be adding their names to the long list of Americans who have honored our country by marching in the inaugural parade.”
“There will be more than 8,000 parade participants representing forty organizations including high school and university marching bands, equestrian corps, first responders, and veterans groups,” the committee added.
They went on to say that more information about the parade “will be forthcoming” and “[f]urther participants may also be announced.”
