CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
With just hours away from Monday's historic inauguration of President Barack Obama, organizers are hard at work putting all of the finishing touches on the event.
Thanks to a SWLA elementary school student, 7News has a firsthand, inside look at what's happening on the ground in Washington, D.C.
On Thursday, we told you the story of two SWLA students who were preparing to head to Washington for the inauguration; Spencer Butts, a student LeBlanc Middle School in Sulphur, and Jillian Elliott, a student at Westwood Elementary School in Westlake.
Both students have made it safely to Washington and Jillian has been sharing her pictures of inauguration set up with 7News.
"It's extremely crowded," said Jacqui Elliott, Jillian's mom.
"Many roads are closed. The weather's been very nice," she added.
Jillian, who's been to D.C. before, said she's having a great time. She's looking forward most to the "People to People's" exclusive inauguration ball which she's been invited to.
Take a look at the pictures Jillian and her mom Jacqui have shared with us.
