The State Capitol Grand re-Opening celebration kicks off today. After nearly four years of construction, the restored Capitol building–with a $310 million price tag–is ready for its close-up. Activities are planned throughout the weekend, including tonight’s lighting of the Capitol Rotunda chandelier, and a Prince dance party. On Saturday, a full day of family-friendly events will be capped off with fireworks. On Sunday there will be a Capitol workers’ memorial plaque dedication and appreciation celebration. Tours of the newly-refurbished Capitol are running throughout the weekend. For a schedule of all the weekend’s events, click here.
