The festivities for Gov. Jay Nixon and first lady Georganne Nixon will start with a service at a Jefferson City church. That will be followed by the traditional parade ending at the state Capitol.
The swearing-in ceremony for five statewide officials is scheduled to start at 11:15 AM Missouri law states that a governor’s four-year term starts at noon on the second Monday in January.
The Nixons also plan a reception at the Governor’s Mansion and a barbecue showcase at a Jefferson City hotel. Inauguration Day will wrap up with a ball in the Capitol.
