By  | 

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Washington, DC is buzzing as the city prepares for Inauguration Day. President-Elect Donald Trump will take the oath of office at noon on Friday January 20th.

Trump says his Inauguration Day is going to be elegant. The day will start with a service at St. John's Episcopal Church. Then he will make his way to the White House for a meeting with President Obama.

Amid music and prayers, Trump will take the oath of office on the West front of the US Capitol.

Then he will enjoy the Inaugural luncheon inside Statuary Hall where he will dine on Maine lobster, Gulf shrimp, and Angus beef from a Virginia farm.

There will be speeches and gifts given at the luncheon. The tradition dates as far back as 1897.

Before the parade begins, the new president will review the troops. This is a long-standing military tradition.

The Parade route will take Trump from the Capitol down Pennsylvania Avenue to his new home the White house. There will be military units, bands, and even cavalry units - all the pomp and circumstance expected for the Inauguration of the next President of the United States.

Trump and the First Lady will end the big day on the dance floor. They’re set to attend 3 Inaugural balls around Washington.
