At Least 3 Kan. Events To Mark Obama Swearing In

TOPEKA, Kan. The tickets for Barack Obama's inauguration might be too hard to get. But at least three Kansas cities plan to stage their own celebration.

The festivities include a parade, music and prayer services, all timed to Obama's inauguration as president.

A free prayer and gospel music ceremony is scheduled for noon Jan. 20 in Topeka. It's followed by an 8 p.m.-to-midnight party, both sponsored by a community advocacy group, Bias Busters of
Kansas.

In Wichita, the Obama Kansas Change Committee is planning a 9 a.m. parade. It's followed by a church service, a lunch, a viewing of Obama's inaugural speech on big-screen televisions and a 7:30 p.m. ball.

Meanwhile, the Wyandotte County Democratic Party has announced
plans for an event in the Kansas City area.
