There were several groups of people but not a massive crowd in downtown Frankfort Tuesday however visitors like, Tom Webb, says he got up early to make sure he had a good view of the 59th Inaugural Parade.
"We went out to the place where the shuttle runs and we were the first car there this morning," said Webb.
Governor Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear waved from horse-drawn carriages. Soon to follow was Lt. Governor-elect, Jerry Abramson, and and his wife, Madeline Abramson.
"Looks like there's quite a few people to see their kids in marching bands that's why I'm here and I'm really excited to see the Governor as well," said Kelly Harrison, who drove her family down from Cincinnati.
There were over 50 high school marching bands that performed up Capital Avenue. The Governor's office says more than 4,000 people were in the parade but viewer, Ruth Brown, says there should have been more students there to watch.
"Maybe more high school children seeing what goes on with their local government," said Brown.
The Owensboro Symphony Orchestra was also in Frankfort, they played the Grand March in the Capitol Rotunda.
