How much did President Obama's inauguration cost?

Posted: Updated:

 From meals to parades to the balls, inaugurations are expensive.

 According to ABC News, the cost of Obama's first inauguration in 2009 was around $170 million.

 While incumbent presidents historically spend less on a second inauguration, it's unclear what the total bill will be this time around.

 Right now, analysts have put the total cost at roughly $14 million.

 The entire event is paid for through donations.
