                                             been mainstays . The first Inaugural Ball, for instance, was held for
                                             James Madison in 1809 . As the popularity of this event grew, so did
                                             the number of events held . This year, President Obama and Vice
                                             President Biden will attend ten official Inaugural Balls .
