More marches in support of President Donald Trump are expected to bring large crowds to D.C. this weekend.

The Million MAGA March and Women for America First are among the groups planning to rally, according to event permits issued to those organizations by the National Park Service.

In total, those two groups said they're expecting thousands of supporters to attend, according to the permits.

A permit for a Women for America First rally says the group is expecting 15,000 people to gather starting at 11 a.m. Saturday for an event featuring speakers that begins on Freedom Plaza, followed by a march to the exterior of the Supreme Court before concluding with more speeches and wrapping up around 3:30 p.m.

Explaining police response to Trump rally shooting

The permit for Saturday's Million MAGA March says organizers are expecting 500 people at and around the Sylvan Theater on the National Mall, near the Washington Monument. The permit was issued for a demonstration on "election integrity" and Second Amendment rights from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The demonstrations will come less than a month after similar events, during which participants protested election results they said were fraudulent.

That evening, the night of Nov. 14, some violent clashes between Trump supporters and counterprotesters erupted on downtown streets. Dozens of people were arrested, and two police officers were injured, according to the office of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. Police responded to numerous reports of fights, and one person was stabbed in a fight that police said was related to the protests.

Ahead of this weekend's marches, expect some street closures and parking restrictions.

Street Closures

The following streets will be restricted to vehicular traffic from about 6 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. According to a release from D.C. police: "The decision to restrict vehicles will be based upon public safety and if safe to do so, vehicles will be allowed to enter the restricted area if they are on essential business or traveling to-and-from their residence."
