You are most likely wondering what in the world the 2013 Inauguration is. I'm here to answer that. The Inauguration is like a week of celebration celebrating the election of the newly elected president. It is HUGE. The last Inauguration in 2009 had an estimated 1.8 million people at it. It's that HUGE.This is the 2013 Inauguration schedule. By the way, all of this takes place in Washington D.C.



On January 19, 2013 the president will ask all of America to organize and participate in community projects to honor Martian Luther King Jr.

On January 20, 2013 the President will participate in a small, private swearing in ceremony.

On January 21, 2013 there will be the public and official swearing in ceremony and President Barack Obama will begin his second and final term. There will also be an Inaugural Parade, many official Inaugural balls and numerous galas honoring President Barack Obama and his reelection. The official theme this year is "Faith in America's Future."

On January 22, 2013 the National Prayer Service at Washington National Cathedral will take place. President Barack Obama and his family, Joe Biden and his family, dignified or important people from many different places from all over the globe, and Americans of varied religions and faiths will attend the service of diverse faith. You can watch this live at www.nationalcathedral.org.

This is the week of events. It is a lot of work to do this. The clothing must be decided, the food, the speeches, ect. It is a lot even to think about. Stay tuned and check out this page after Inauguration week [after January 22, 2013] for pictures of this year's Inauguration.
