Inauguration 2013

On Monday, January 21, 2013, Barack Obama will be publicly inaugurated for his second term as president of the United States. Since the 20th of January falls on a Sunday (the date in which the president is required by law to take his Oath of Office) the official inauguration will be held in a private ceremony on Sunday before noon. The entire week is loaded with festivities, including concerts, the Inaugural Parade and several inaugural balls. President Obama's first inauguration attracted a record-breaking 1.8 million attendees, which included high profile stars such as Beyoncé, Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. This year's ceremony is predicted to be just as large with more than a million people coming to Washington, D.C., to celebrate the second term of America's first black president.
