Detroit Mayor Dave Bing will serve as master of ceremonies during the inauguration of Republican Gov.-elect Rick Snyder on Jan. 1.
Bing is a Democrat, making Thursday's announcement a show of bipartisanship.
Nonpartisan Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell will lead the invocation and closing prayer at the ceremony scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. on New Year's Day outside the state Capitol.
The inauguration ceremony is open to the public and is free of charge.
Snyder is scheduled to have a receiving line inside the Capitol after the ceremony.
An inaugural celebration at Michigan State University's Wharton Center is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Jan. 1. A $125 ticket is required.
The inaugural events will be paid for through private donations and ticket sales.
