Before starting the serious job of leading Indiana, Mike Pence wanted to have a little fun.
The 53-year-old Columbus native, who becomes the state’s 50th governor today, invited fellow Hoosiers to enjoy the historic occasion during an inauguration weekend.
Family Fun Day, a free, family-style celebration Saturday at the Dallara IndyCar Factory in Speedway, was the first of several public events leading up to today’s inauguration of Pence.
The two-term Republican member of Congress is scheduled to take the oath of office at 11:32 a.m., replacing Gov. Mitch Daniels. The hour-long inauguration ceremony in Indianapolis begins at 11 a.m. on the west steps of the Indiana Statehouse, 200 W. Washington St., unless inclement weather forces it inside the Rotunda.
