Inslee’s inaugural ball moving back to Capitol

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA – Gov.-elect Jay Inslee’s inaugural ball is moving back to the state Capitol.

The Governor’s Inaugural Ball Committee said Friday that officials have made changes that will help with accessibility and security. The committee had initially planned to hold the event at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey because the venue offered better access and parking for an event that draws up to 5,000 people.

The inaugural ball has taken place since 1853 and in recent years has been held at the Capitol.

Ticket sales cover the cost of the ball. Tickets are $100 per person.
