President-elect Donald Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee has announced events for Inaugural Week come January. The festivities kick off on Tuesday, January 17, and continue until Sunday, January 21. The inauguration’s theme is inspired by Trump’s campaign and is “Make America Great Again!”
“President-elect Trump is committed to unifying our country as we once again celebrate the foundation of our American system and the peaceful transfer of power,” committee chair Tom Barrack said in a statement.
“The 2017 inaugural celebrations will reflect President-elect Trump’s eagerness to get to work in order to make our country safer and stronger.”
Several events are traditional for the Inauguration, including the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington, the inaugural parade, inaugural balls, and attending the National Prayer Service at Washington National Cathedral. Trump and his family will attend a private service before the Inauguration, also traditional. Vice President-elect Mike Pence will also take part in the wreath laying ceremony.
The Lincoln Memorial will host a welcome celebration and concert. Few details are currently available, although it is open to the public. There will be two official balls, in addition to a ball for military members and their families.
