Just what is the most expensive inauguration item in 2013? (Hint: see above!)
Among some of the more mundane items from the official 57th Presidential Inauguration store are your buttons, pens and rulers. But this silver coin breaks the mold–and bank–with a hefty $1k price-tag. We’re not entirely sure where this mythical “7.500” medallion is that 9News found, but we won’t give up in our efforts for expensive tchotkes. Along with that PIC sent out a press release officially announcing more groups joining the inauguration.
Participants in the 2013 Inaugural Parade so far include marching bands, drill teams, dance groups, and more.
“The talented groups chosen to participate in the Inaugural Parade reflect the spirit, values, and diversity of our great nation,” President Obama said. “Vice President Biden and I are honored to have them join us in the parade.”
