Biden Team Backs Away from Big and Bold Inauguration Plans

…Interesting…

With President Trump continuing to dispute the results of the 2020 election, there are plenty of concerns over what the next few weeks could look like in Washington DC.

The first hurdle will be January 6th:  The date when Congress certifies the electoral colleges’ outcome, and a day that the President has asked his supporters to gather in the nation’s capital.  Should things not go their way, there’s no telling what sort of fireworks the nation could see.

And then there’s January 20th:  The date on which the Constitution declares that an inauguration will occur.  This is normally a rather large, festive affair, complete with a parade and a bit of a “party” atmosphere.

Team Biden isn’t planning for a traditional celebration, however.

President-elect Joe Biden won’t get a traditional inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue after he takes the oath of office, but he will get a presidential escort to the White House.

Biden and incoming first lady Jill Biden will forgo the traditional inaugural parade on Jan. 20, the Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Sunday.

Instead, the Bidens will receive a presidential escort from 15th Street to the White House after his swearing-in on the West Front of the Capitol. The escort will include representatives of every branch of the military, including the U.S. Army Band, a Joint Service Honor Guard, and the Commander-in-Chief’s Guard and Fife and Drum Corps from the 3rd U.S. Infantry “The Old Guard.”

And, contrary to some users on Twitter who believed the parade was fully canceled:

A “virtual parade” will be televised and will feature performances in communities across the country. The parade will celebrate America’s heroes, highlight Americans from all walks of life in different states and regions, and reflect the country’s diversity, heritage and resilience, inaugural planners said.

Participants for the virtual parade will be announced in the coming weeks, but the inaugural committee said the programming will include musical acts, local bands, poets, dance troupes and others paying homage to America’s heroes on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Of course, if President Trump has his way, none of this planning will have been necessary.
