The event is scheduled to begin at 3:00 pm EDT.
President Donald Trump announced a contingency plan after he canceled plans to honor the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory.
The Eagles were supposed to attend a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, but Trump nixed those plans at the 11th hour, and will instead host “A Celebration of America” featuring military bands and the playing of the national anthem.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, fewer than 10 players planned to attend the White House celebration.
The NFL Players Association said they were “disappointed” in the decision.
