HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) - Thousands of people are attending Gov. Tom Wolf’s inaugural party in Hershey, with people paying $100-a-ticket to dine on prime rib, elk meatloaf and pierogies with Kennett Square mushrooms.

Tuesday night’s event was headlined by the Democrat, who was sworn in as Pennsylvania’s 47th governor just after noon. He spoke briefly from stage, saying the work to deliver on his promise of better schools, better jobs and better government would begin Wednesday.

Entertainment included the Philadelphia band Dreamtime and party goers were snapping selfies with a cardboard cutout of Wolf’s Jeep Wrangler.

A selection of Pennsylvania beers was available, too, but one in particular is missing: Yuengling. The brewery’s president Richard Yuengling Jr. is a Republican activist. Wolf’s inaugural spokeswoman says organizers met their “beverage needs” with other Pennsylvania breweries.
