President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris traveled from 15th Street in the nation’s capital to the White House to kick off the event. The drumlines from the University of Delaware and Howard University — Biden’s and Harris’ respective alma maters — were part of the Presidential Escort. The parade featured 1,391 virtual participants, 95 horses and nine dogs.

“By lifting up voices from all walks of life, in every corner of our country, we want the first moments of the Biden-Harris Administration to be a celebration of an inclusive, resilient united America,” Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO and President of Delaware State University, Tony Allen, said in a statement.

Actor, director and producer Tony Goldwyn hosted the parade, which featured performers like Jon Stewart and the New Radicals.
