Ribbon-cutting Ceremony
Ribbon-cutting ceremonies often involves a comically oversized pair of scissors good for little else.

An opening ceremony, grand opening, or ribbon-cutting ceremony marks the official opening of a newly-constructed location or the start of an event.[1] Opening ceremonies at large events such as the Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup, and the Rugby World Cup might have an opening ceremony that involves thousands of participants and is watched worldwide.

In the case of physical establishments, its grand opening might be preceded by a "soft opening" or "soft launch" in which the establishment begins to operate with little promotion, to allow testing of operations, procedures, and facilities.
