President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration parade has been cancelled in favor of a virtual version designed to limit crowds during the coronavirus era.

Organizers announced the changes on Sunday, saying that a 'virtual parade across America' will be held instead of the traditional procession on Inauguration Day, January 20.

Those are military traditions where Biden will review the readiness of military troops.

That, the Presidential Inaugural Committee says, will be socially distanced too, while 'providing the American people and world with historic images of the President-elect proceeding to the White House without attracting large crowds'.

Joe Biden's inaugural parade has been cancelled and replaced with a virtual version, organizers announced Sunday.

The parade event will be televised and feature 'diverse, dynamic' performances in communities across the country, the inaugural committee promised.

The upcoming inaugural celebration will be Biden's third, after having spent two terms as vice president under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017. »
