NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Ahead of this week’s inauguration in downtown Nashville, Mayor-Elect Megan Barry has unveiled a new theme, called “We Make Nashville.”

Public relations officials said the theme would be on display during Barry’s swearing-in at Public Square.

“This is about celebrating all of Nashville,” Barry said in the unveiling of the theme. “What makes Nashville great is the diversity of our economy, our culture, our ideas, our music and our spirit.”

The inauguration will take place Friday, from 2-3 p.m. An interfaith prayer service has been scheduled from 7:30-8:30 that morning. A public reception will follow from 3-5 p.m.

Some of the events could be moved in the event of weather.

On September 10, Barry defeated opponent David Fox to become Nashville’s first elected female mayor. In her victory, she carried 55 percent of the vote.
