Children’s activities, a formal ball and a worship service are planned this weekend in Indianapolis to celebrate Columbus native Mike Pence’s inauguration Monday as Indiana’s 50th governor.
The governor-elect and his wife, Karen, wanted inaugural events to be enjoyable and accessible to many Hoosiers, said Christy Denault, communications director for Mike Pence for Indiana.
“The goal was really to let as many Hoosiers as possible be a part of it,” Denault said.
The children’s activities will be Saturday afternoon, the formal ball Saturday night and the worship service Sunday afternoon. The traditional, outdoor swearing-in ceremony will be Monday morning.
All of the public activities are free except for the ball and dinner Saturday at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis. Registration, however, is required for all activities to help organizers plan for the number of people.
Registration can be completed online at www.indianaworks.eventbrite.com and tickets printed out from home.
