The only way to get a ticket to the Montana Governor's Inaugural Ball is to go online to the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds.

According to Gov. Bullock's office, many people have already done that. The number of available $25 tickets is dwindling. The deadline for the February 9th event is February 4th, but officials think that a sell-out may occur before that deadline.

February 4th is also the deadline for RSVPs for the February 10th Children's Inaugural Carnival. Both events will held at the Exhibit Hall at the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds in Helena. The February 9th ball will from 7 p.m. to midnight and includes live music, appetizers and drinks.

The February 10th Big Sky Carnival themed Children's Ball will be Sunday, February 10th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and includes carnival food and activities. Live music will be by the Whizpops. Guests are asked to bring a nonperishable food donation for the Montana Food Bank Network.
