The parties will take place Monday at the Washington Convention Center starting at 6 p.m. First is the Commander in Chief’s Ball, where the President Obama and Vice-President Biden “will honor the brave men and women of our country’s armed forces and their families,” according to a press release by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
