10 Inaugural Balls For Obama

4683162Barack Obama, Joe Biden and their wives are going to appear at 10 official inaugural balls on Jan. 20, the Washington Post reports.

That's the same number Ronald Reagan had in 1985, and less than the record 14 for Bill Clinton in 1997. For those of you wondering more, President Bush had eight in 2000 and nine in 2005, reports the Post.

Six of the inaugural balls will take place at the Washington Convention Center, with the other four at the National Building Museum, Union Station, the Washington Hilton Hotel and the D.C. Armory.

Information on entertainment, themes and other details is not yet available. But for more on what is known about the balls and tips to get in, you can check out the rest of Roxanne Roberts' report.
