The inaugural events will kick off on Saturday, May 14th with a city-wide Day of Service. On Saturday afternoon, the festivities will continue with a family-friendly concert in Grant Park. The swearing-in of the three city-wide elected officials and City Council will take place Monday, May 16th at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
