PHOENIX (AP) — Plans for Arizona's 2019 inauguration ceremony are taking shape for the event scheduled Jan. 7 at the State Capitol.

The 10 a.m. inauguration centers on the swearings-in of Gov. Doug Ducey and five other state officials elected or re-elected in November.

The program will include music from an Arizona National Guard band and a joint color guard of personnel from the Arizona National Guard and the Arizona Department of Public Safety. There also will be a flyover by F-16 fighters from the Arizona Air National Guard.

Other events and activities will include a food tasting fair featuring 10 Arizona restaurants and a family friendly zone with cultural attraction and sports mascots.

The inauguration's date is set by the Arizona Constitution for the first Monday of January following a general election.
