    Two days of events will mark the inauguration of Tom Corbett as Pennsylvania’s 46th governor. Corbett’s inaugural committee said today that a performing arts program, a Catholic Mass and an inaugural ball will wrap around his swearing-in January 18.

    The performing arts program will be at 4 p.m. on January 17 at Harrisburg’s Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. The Catholic Mass will be at 8:30 a.m. on January 18 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a block from the Capitol.

    Corbett’s swearing-in ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. on the East Wing steps outside the Capitol. Tickets to all three events will be free, but seating will be limited.

    The inaugural ball will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. When they become available, tickets will be $150.
