Revelers, bands, protesters to mark Corbett’s inauguration

    There won’t be a parade to mark Tom Corbett’s inauguration as Pennsylvania’s 46th governor, but the capital city will still be transformed into a stage for thousands of revelers, performers, dignitaries and even protesters.

    Corbett and his wife, Susan, will begin their day tomorrow at 8 a.m. at a Catholic Mass a block from the Capitol, and can celebrate until midnight if they wish at the inaugural ball at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.

    The inaugural ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. Corbett, a Republican, will take his oath on the steps of the Capitol’s east entrance.

    It’ll be a long day — pace yourself, Corbett!
