I attended my first political rally yesterday at the Pier Park Amphitheater, and what an experience it was!
Donald Trump was scheduled to start at 7:30pm, so we figured arriving at 4:30pm would give us plenty of time.
We arrived at approximately 4:45pm, parked the car and walked a few blocks and was met by a line of people almost 6 city blocks long!
We got into line and our creeping journey toward the entrance began.
We chatted with lots of local people as well as visitors from Georgia, Alabama and as far away as Tennessee!
Souvenir hawkers were selling all manner of hats, T-Shirts, Buttons, and signs! It was fascinating.
What was most interesting to me however, was the crowd!
According to the news, Trump is not doing well with women. I can tell you first hand they are lying!
From my vantage point of being a women, there were more women than men at the rally!
As well, according to the news, Trump is not doing well with Millenials and from my perception there were thousands of millenials in attendance!
The rally didn't actually start until approx. 8:30 or so and it started with announcement..."We've set a new record for the Panama City Amphitheater... 11,200 inside and an additional 10,000 outside!
WOW, that was indeed incredible and the crowd roared their approval!
All in all it was a historical experience and one that I will not soon forget.
No matter what side of the political fence you stand on, I urge everyone to get out and vote!
Here are a few pictures of the enormous crowd...(right click and Select View Image to get the full size image)
