Wednesday marks 28 years since the Murrah building in Oklahoma City was bombed, killing 168 people, including 19 children.

Survivors, first responders and family members of the victims of the bombing will gather for a ceremony that will be held at 8:45 a.m. in Oklahoma City to mark the anniversary. The event was moved from the national memorial to a church nearby with indoor seating because of bad weather in the forecast.

Retired Chief Justice Steven Taylor, who presided over Terry Nichols' trial, will be the keynote speaker of this year's event. Nichols was sentenced to life in prison for helping plan the bombing.

Seating will begin at 8:30 a.m. at First Church at Northwest 5th and Robinson in Oklahoma City and the event is scheduled to begin around 9 a.m.

The event is free to attend, but it is recommended that attendees show up early if they want a seat.
