President-elect Donald Trump's inaugural parade will include over 8,000 participants and 40 organizations, Boris Epshteyn, director of communications for the inaugural committee told Fox News.
Epshteyn said the participants represent "the truly best of America." He noted they include representatives from the New York police department, as well as the military.
Several veterans service organizations will also be joining in the parade, The Hill reports.
American Veterans, Disabled American Veterans and Wounded Warriors are among the groups participating, according to the website which attributes the information to Trump's inaugural committee.
The groups were not part of the inaugural parades for President Barack Obama, although other veteran organizations did march in Obama's inaugurations, according to The Hill.
"People from every corner of the country have expressed great interest in President-elect Trump's inauguration and look forward to continuing a salute to our republic that spans more than two centuries," said inauguration committee chief executive Sara Armstrong
And Epshteyn, noting the inaugural parade for Dwight Eisenhower was six hours, promised Trump's will not last nearly as long.
"Donald J. Trump is here to work," he said. "So this parade will be an hour to an hour and a half."
