The day kicks off with a prayer breakfast before swearing-in ceremonies begin at 10 a.m. on the Capitol steps for constitutional officers, including Gov. Kay Ivey, Lt. Gov.-elect Will Ainsworth, Attorney General Steve Marshall, Secretary of State John Merrill and State Auditor Jim Ziegler.

Ivey’s inauguration speech will be televised live on Alabama Public Television’s Capitol Journal beginning at 10 a.m.

A parade follows at noon, and an invitation-only Inaugural Gala will be held tonight at the Montgomery Civic Center.

Inaugural activities kicked off Saturday with a concert and celebration on the coast.
