Biden/Harris Inauguration in Washington, DC!
January 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Due to the pandemic, this inauguration will almost certainly look very different from previous ceremonies. James Clyburn, House Majority Whip and chair of Biden’s inaugural committee, has confirmed that due to the ongoing pandemic, much of the traditional fanfare will be moved online. President Elect Biden has also told reporters that there likely won’t be parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, as there has been during inaugurations past. Clyburn has told CNN that it was possible more celebrations would be planned for the summer, when the threat of the pandemic might be less salient—perhaps near July 4th. “Hopefully, things will be under control then,” he said.
Here are some helpful links about the Inauguration:
