Want to experience some inaugural events, here are two that you don't need tickets for


The Presidential Inaugural Committee has announced two events, Voices of the People and The Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration, that are open to the public on Thursday, the day before the official swearing in of our next Commander in Chief, Donald Trump. 

The Voices of the People event will take place from 1:30 to 3:30pm on the JFK Hockey Fields on the National Mall. The Make American Great Again! Welcome Celebration will take place from 4 to 6 pm at the Lincoln Memorial. Both are open to the public.

The Voices of the People will feature groups like the DC Fire Department Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, King’s Academy Honor Choir, the Republican Hindu Coalition, Montgomery Area High School Marching Band, Marlana Van Hoose, Maury NJROTC Color Guard, Pride of Madawaska, Webelos Troop 177, Northern Middle School Honors Choir, American Tap Company, South Park and District Pipe Band, Everett High School Viking Marching Band, TwirlTasTix Baton Twirling, and Celtic United Pipes and Drums.

The Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration will take place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Trump will give remarks and be joined by Toby Keith, Jon Voight, Jennifer Holliday, The Piano Guys, Lee Greenwood, RaviDrums, 3 Doors Down, and The Frontmen of Country (featuring Tim Rushlow, former lead singer of "Little Texas”, Larry Stewart of "Restless Heart" and Richie McDonald of “Lonestar”), according to the Presidential Inaugural Committee. 

Military bands will also play and fireworks will be set off at the conclusion of the event.

“The 58th Inaugural will celebrate American history and heritage, while setting the course to a brighter and bolder future for all Americans,” Inaugural Committee Chairman Tom Barrack said. “Above all, it will serve as tribute to one of our greatest attributes, the peaceful transition of partisan power. As Abraham Lincoln said, ‘when an election is over, it is altogether fitting a free people that until the next election they should be one people."
