July 14, 1994|JOHN CANALIS

Mayor-elect Beverly O'Neill and three new City Council members will meet with the public at a downtown inaugural celebration Tuesday on The Promenade.

O'Neill's transition team has planned a festival featuring food booths and live entertainment by local musicians, dancers, street artists and a performance by the Long Beach Civic Light Opera.

All services connected with the celebration were donated or paid for by contributions, said Diane Jacobus, an assistant to O'Neill.

Newly elected council members Jerry Shultz, Mike Donelon and Jenny Oropeza will also attend the event, which is scheduled from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

The celebration caps a day of inaugural events. The new city leaders will be sworn in at a formal ceremony in council chambers at 9 a.m. O'Neill will preside over her first City Council meeting at 2 p.m.
