However you voted in the election, and at this point, I don't think it's important--you are probably excited about Inauguration Day this Tuesday.
I'm excited for a number of reasons, but at the top of those is the Inauguration Day Parade. I will be watching to see our Mustangs strut their stuff in front of the entire nation. I hope President-elect Obama will also be impressed.
Here is Tuesday's schedule, I believe in Eastern Time--I left out most of the balls and luncheons:
Gates open: 8:00 AM
Location: US Capitol, West Front
No tickets are required to view the Inaugural Ceremony on the National Mall west of 4th Street.
2009 Inaugural Parade
Gates open: 7:00 AM
Event begins: approximately 2:30 PM
Location: Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
The majority of the parade route will be free and open to the public for standing room access. Viewing spots on the parade route are available on a first come, first serve basis.
