Can’t get to Washington, D.C. in time for the biggest celebration of the year? There are many ways to watch the history-making Inaugural event which will see the swearing in of President-elect Barack Obama. Can’t attend a party in reality? Time to turn to all different types of TV.
The carbon-neutral Green Inaugural Ball, which is chaired by former VP Al Gore, will be Webcast on multiple sites. Watch the arrivals on the Green Carpet and enjoy the emissions-free atmosphere from the safety of your laptop.
MTV will also be Webcasting their Inaugural Event (the “Be the Change Inaugural Ball”), which is being held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. An array of musicians and celebs will be on hand for the event.

Other events include the Creative Coalition Ball (Sting, Anne Hathaway, Spike Lee and many other stars will brighten up the evening at this party), the Purple Ball (honoring U.S. troops and ending racism are the goals here - guests include Patricia Arquette and Ashley Judd), the Human Rights Campaign Equality Ball (Cyndi Lauper, Melissa Etheridge and others), the Peace Ball (Joan Baez and Jackson Browne will both appear among the celebrants), the Urban Ball (hosted by Ludacris and featuring entertainers such as Big Boi and Monica), and so many others they cannot all be listed.
Actual television coverage of the multitude of Inaugural events will focus on Barack Obama’s swearing in and the main ceremony. ABC will be showing the Neighborhood Ball, while BET will showcase their Yes We Will Change celebration. CBS and FNC are among the networks which will focus on the main event itself (the actual Inaugural Ball to be attended by the President and First Lady).
Which party will you remotely attend for the evening?
