NORFOLK -- Hundreds of people were at the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center Sunday night for the Hampton Roads Inaugural Ball.

The event is one of several taking place during the week leading up to January 11 when Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe will take the oath of office and become Virginia's 72nd governor.

The ball in Norfolk paid tribute to the Commonwealth's veterans and current military members as well as their families.

Those groups were invited to attend the event for free.
