Governor-elect Rick Scott will hold an inaugural ball as part of celebrations of his swearing in.

Gov. Charlie Crist abandoned the tradition after taking office in 2007 amid an outcry over holding a highbrow event in a time of economic crisis for the state.

Tickets to the ball are priced at $95. Other events surrounding Scott's January 4 inauguration are free.
