Bush to Celebrate at Inaugural Events Wednesday

President Bush Wednesday will attend six events related to his inauguration for a second term in the White House.

Mr. Bush plans to make stops at a luncheon, a pop music concert, three candlelight dinners, and a reception for his Texas supporters called the "Black Tie and Boots Ball." The concert, dubbed "A Celebration of Freedom," features The Temptations, country singer Kenny Chesney, and a drop-in by the U.S. Army's parachute team.

Sub-freezing temperatures and a forecast of snow are not expected to put a chill on the celebrations. The president will take the oath of office Thursday outside the U.S. Capitol building, watched by unprecedented security and a crowd expected to number several hundred thousand people.
