Free Tickets Available for Lightfoot’s Inauguration

Tickets are available for Lori Lightfoot's inauguration ceremony set to take place at the city's Wintrust Arena this month. 

The inauguration is open to the public and tickets are free through 5 p.m. on May 15. The swearing-in also will be livestreamed.

Lightfoot's office has released details for the May 20 event. The official ceremony is to begin at 10 a.m. and include several musical performances including the Chicago Sinfonietta, Puerto Rican Arts Alliance and Latin Music Program and the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus. 

After the inauguration Lightfoot and her wife plan an open house at the mayor's office in City Hall. Voters in Chicago last month elected Lightfoot the first black female mayor of Chicago. The May 20 inauguration also will include swearings-in of city Clerk Anna Valencia and city Treasurer-elect Melissa Conyears-Ervin.
