After the address, the new president escorts the outgoing chief executive to a departure ceremony before attending a luncheon in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall.

Obama will then go to a luncheon at the Capitol. He'll then start the journey down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House. It's not clear yet if he'll get out and walk at any point along the way. Once he gets to the White House he'll head to the reviewing stand to watch the parade.

The parade will start at 2:30pm ET and goes down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House.

Later in the evening the President and Mrs. Obama will attend several balls. All the networks expect to have live coverage of their first dance.
