2 days of inaugural festivities planned for Beebe | News
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansans can celebrate the start of Gov. Mike Beebe's second term with two days of festivities, beginning with a casual barbecue Monday evening, Jan. 10, and concluding with an inaugural ball the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 11, with a swearing-in ceremony and inaugural speech in between at mid-day Tuesday.
The Arkansas Democratic Party announced the plans Tuesday.
The news release said tickets would be required for both the barbecue - called "Beebe-Que: A Southern Casual Affair" – at Cajun's Wharf in Little Rock and the formal ball at the downtown Statehouse Convention Center.
The swearing-in ceremony and speech by Beebe on the steps of the state Capitol at noon Tuesday, Jan. 10, will be open to the public, as will a reception at 2 p.m. in the Capitol rotunda.
