Inauguration Day for President-elect Joe Biden will look a lot different than the nation has ever seen before. With COVID-19 and the storming of the Capitol on January 6th, Biden’s day will be unparalleled compared to years past.
Instead of a parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, there will be a memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. Instead of balls, there will be Zoom parties.
Instead of hundreds of thousands congregating on the Capitol grounds and on the National Mall, there will be thousands of National Guard members.
In past inaugurations, participants would sport their tuxedos and flashy ball gowns by attending one of the many inaugural balls and galas taking place around town.
This year, state Democratic Parties and advocacy groups will hold virtual balls.
Later tonight, Actor Tom Hanks will host a 90-minute prime-time TV special with performances by Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, Demi Lovato and Ant Clemons.
Beginning at 10:00 AM, you can watch the Inauguration with ONNtv as we stream this to our Facebook feed and SaultOnline.com.
