Presidential inauguration festivities are under way, both in the nation's capital and soon, here at home. Four years ago, organizers put together a Quad City Inaugural Ball and it's on again for Monday night. It's designed for those who can't go to Washington, D.C., but still want to celebrate.

Organizers say the first Quad City event back in 2009 was well-attended, with more than 500 people who turned out.

"The number exceeded, you know, we met the fire code, so we had to start turning people away. Hopefully, all the people who really, really want to go this year have already thought ahead and gotten their tickets," said Maria Dickmann.

There will be two bands performing and dinner and drinks served at the Davenport RiverCenter. Organizers say they are not affiliated with any political party and hope everyone will consider attending the event.

"This is about coming together. We're really working on building communities that we can all work together to try to correct all the issues that are facing our country right now, Dickmann added.

The Quad City Inaugural Ball starts at 6 p.m. Monday. Tickets are $40. Look for more information on our Events page.
