BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A delayed inaugural ceremony for Mayor Michelle Wu is taking the form of a block party on City Hall Plaza Thursday afternoon.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the city says the ceremony "breaking with tradition" is free to register and "will bring together residents of all ages for family-friendly activities, food, and musical performances for “A Celebration of Boston’s Possibility.”
Mayor Wu was sworn in in November, just two weeks after she became the first woman and first person of color elected Mayor of Boston. COVID-19 delayed a ceremony, so the event has been pushed back until now, shifting from a standard inaugural ceremony.
“I’m thrilled to finally mark our inauguration in community as the school year comes to a close and Boston gets ready for summer,” Mayor Wu said in a statement ahead of the event. “Our administration is focused on making Boston a city for everyone, so this summer block party will celebrate the limitless possibility of what we can achieve together.”
