Parade lineup announced for Trump inauguration

WASHINGTON — Members from each branch of the U.S. military, first responder groups and the Boy Scouts are all set to march in next month’s inaugural parade for President-elect Donald Trump, the Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Friday.

High school and college marching bands from nearly a dozen states are also set to participate, but no local schools were on the list released by the committee.

The inaugural committee released an “initial list” of groups that have accepted an invitation to take part in the parade, which takes place Jan. 20 after Trump is sworn into office.

All told, there will be more than 8,000 parade participants from more than 40 groups, the committee said.

Marching bands hailing from high schools and colleges in Indiana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennesse and Louisiana and Florida are all set to march.

Members of police and fire departments from Indianapolis, Cleveland and Ann Arbor will also be represented.

Veterans groups, such as the Disabled American Veterans and Wounded Warriors group are also set to take part.

Earlier this week, the inaugural committee announced six faith leaders would participate in Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.
