KENSINGTON, Brooklyn — Brooklynites now have an adorable alternative to watching the presidential inauguration.

Hinterlands Bar in Kensington has pledged to show cute animals on both of their televisions all day and night on Jan. 20.

"It's going to happen but we don't have to watch it," the bar said in a Facebook post about Donald Trump's inauguration.

The adorable animal-fest kicks off at 1 p.m. on Friday and ends 4 a.m. on Saturday.

President-elect Trump has said that "Inauguration Day is turning out to be even bigger than expected." An estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people are expected to attend the inauguration.

But Trump is heading into the White House with historically low approval ratings.

Several thousand people have vowed to protest his inauguration outside Trump Hotel on Thursday night. It's been the site of several demonstrations since Trump was elected.

Protests will be held in other cities nationwide Thursday and throughout the weekend. Many groups are also planning to attend the Women's March in Washington, D.C. and sister marches in other cities on Saturday.
