The Latest Lowdown on Tickets

From today's Post:

Swearing-In Ceremony: About 240,000 tickets have been printed, and they are being kept under lock and key. Tickets are free and will be distributed by members of Congress and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, once it is established. Tickets will not be available for distribution until about a week before the ceremony.

Inaugural Parade: The inaugural parade along Pennsylvania and Constitution avenues, which usually features about 12,000 marchers, has in the past required tickets for bleacher seats, though standing room is free. Parade details are also still being worked out.

Other Events: Tickets to inaugural balls are sold by state societies, organizations that promote states and plan the big galas. States sometimes hold those balls jointly.
