Sweet Florida’s first verse says DeSantis ‘stands up for what he believes’ and warns people not to ‘come down here trying to change things.’

Other than that first dance and stage appearance, most guests say that they didn’t see much of the couple throughout the night.

Attendees had mixed reviews of the inaugural ball, which could be indicative of whether or not they were able to clinch a VIP ticket. Guests leaving said that the event at the Donald L Tucker Civic Center was segregation between VIP and general admission.

A man leaving the ball around 8:00 p.m. described the VIP section as ‘where the actual party was.’

Bernice, 79, from Boca Raton, said the event was ‘too crowded’ and that it was a ‘fire hazard’ – she also described it as ‘COVID heaven.’

The tax collector for Franklin County, Florida told DailyMail.com that the ‘enthusiasm of the crowd was the best I’ve ever seen for any inauguration’ – and he’s been to several.

Other than dancing in the large open arena, guests were also welcomed to take photos at a station that included a hedge wall and the logo for DeSantis’ inauguration week, which includes his overarching motto: ‘The Free State of Florida.’

The party favors provided to guests were white koozies with navy blue writing

Pink and purple uplighting was scattered throughout the arena, guests described to DailyMail.com, and some ‘finger food’ included desserts, fruit and chicken and waffle skewers.

The Inaugural Ball brings a close to the festivities surrounding the start of Governor DeSantis’ second term in the Sunshine State amid rumors that he could launch a presidential run in 2024.

A program from the Inaugural Ball seen by DailyMail.com lists out the sponsors for the inaugural events. Some of the donors include ABC Fine Wine and Spirits, CVS Health, and Dosal Tobacco Corporation, among dozens of others.
