Inauguration 2013 coverage continues on KRCG 13

While most Americans will watch President Barack Obama's second inauguration festivities on TV, a privileged set of celebrities and special interests are getting up close by attending exclusive soirees just blocks from the ceremonies.

High-powered lobbying shops and law firms are opening up their Pennsylvania Avenue offices for clients, legislators and government officials, affording opportunities to renew ties and lay the groundwork for lobbying and deal-making.

But this year's festivities will be scaled back from the 2009 levels at Obama's first inauguration. Downtown Washington's hotels are jammed, though not to capacity, and Dulles International Airport anticipates roughly 300 private aircraft, significantly

fewer than the 700 planes from last time.

The President and Mrs. Obama attended a church service this morning. Inauguration ceremonies will begin at 10:30 a.m. with remarks by Congressional leaders, and the swearing in of Vice President Biden.

President Obama will take the Oath of Office at 11 a.m. with a 21-cannon salute. The day's events will break for lunch at 12 p.m. for local news coverage. KRCG 13 Live at Noon will be on-air at this time. CBS coverage will continue at 1:15 p.m. with the review of military troops and procession of the President and First Lady to the White House. The Inaugural Parade will follow, with coverage coming to a close at 4:00 p.m.

You can watch the Inauguration coverage on KRCG 13 throughout Monday afternoon, with more coverage during KRCG 13 Live at 5, 6 and 10.
