RALEIGH, NC (AP) - North Carolina's top elected leaders may be cutting the rug on the eve of their public swearings-in.
    
The North Carolina Governor's Inaugural Ball is scheduled for Friday night at the Raleigh Convention Center. The event and preceding Gala Presentation formally honors new Gov. Pat McCrory and Lt. Gov. Dan Forest as well as the eight incumbent Council of State members winning re-election in November. About 3,500 people are expected to attend the events.
    
The ball is put on by the Junior League of Raleigh and raises money for charity.
    
Friday's events precede the outdoor inaugural ceremony Saturday morning on Capitol Square.
    
McCrory and Forest already took their oaths of office in smaller ceremonies, but the two will take the oaths again outdoors Saturday with the remaining council members.
