Celebrating the presidential inauguration

Published January 16, 2009

On Saturday, January 17, 2009, President-Elect Obama will be visiting Baltimore on his way to his inauguration and will deliver a speech near City Hall at Baltimore's War Memorial Plaza. The speech is scheduled to commence at 4:15 p.m.  National Aquarium visitors and overflow speech-goers will have a chance to see and hear the speech on a large screen in front of the Aquarium on Pier 3 in the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Waterfront Park. For the safety and security of visitors to our city, many downtown streets will be closed on Saturday. Plan your visit to Baltimore City accordingly! Visit getarounddowntown.com, a service provided by Downtown Partnership, for a complete listing of these closures. Also, to accommodate visitors in the area, the Aquarium’s ticket center will close at 4 p.m. on Saturday. Visit aqua.org for details. If you are traveling to Washington D.C. next week and looking for fun things to do around the city, stop by the newly renovated National Aquarium in D.C. located in the basement of the Commerce building.
