Tuesday afternoon one year later, Boston will pause and pay tribute to the victims and the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Thousands of people have been invited to the Hynes Convention Center for a day of remembrance beginning at 12 p.m. The Boston POPS conducted by Keith Lockhart will kicked off the event.

Vice President Joe Biden will speak at the event. Other dignitaries will speak, including Mayor Walsh, Governor Patrick and Former Mayor Tom Menino.

At 2:30 p.m. the ceremony moves outside to Boylston Street. There will be a flag raising ceremony at 2:45 and at 2:49, a moment of silence.

Three survivors will be among those speaking in addition to the politicians. The family of the youngest victim, Martin Richards, will also be in attendance.

If you're planning to attend, the Copley T station will be closed from 12-3 p.m. Boylston Street will also be shut down, and there are a number of parking restrictions. For the full list of traffic and parking restrictions, click here.
