Details about the 2013 Presidential Inauguration are slowly being announced. President Obama is cutting back on the number of inaugural balls to save money on the events. There will be just two official balls plus a concert honoring military families. This makes a lot of sense considering the state of the economy. There will still be plenty of celebrations and partying going on around the region. Dozens of unofficial balls are organized by organizations, many that are open to the public. For details, see a guide to 2013 Inaugural Balls and Galas. For updated information on all of the inaugural events, see Presidential Inauguration 2013.
