The cars have started to arrive in the parking lot of the Chase Center for the biggest show in Wilmington, Delaware, tonight: A drive-in rally for the victory rally for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
“Welcome, welcome,” an advance staffer in a blue Biden-Harris mask, said to the first few cars. “Thank you for being here!”
It’s a hometown crowd, with longtime supporters and top contributors given preference. But most people were urged to watch from home, given the pandemic.
Biden is expected to deliver a call for unity in the face of the nation’s challenges. But there will be fireworks. A truck filled with the festive explosives has been parked all week at a neighboring baseball field. A light show from drones is also expected. And a confetti cannon, aides say.
The show is scheduled to begin around 8 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, Biden’s eldest granddaughter Naomi Biden tweeted a photo showing the President-elect being embraced by his family. The caption reads “11.07.20.”
