Turnout was huge. Very inspiring to see that many people together in one place protesting against Big Government. An SBABG member took some amazing photos on behalf of our group. You can see them all here. We met A LOT of small business owners there, and we met a whole lot of others who work for small businesses or who are concerned about how Big Government (and Big Business’ corporate welfare) is hurting small business. Here are just a few photos to sample from the whole collection:
The event was very peaceful. Everyone was almost too polite. Lots of families there, kids, young people, all very courteous and the place was perfectly clean when the rally ended. We never met such a bunch of nice folks in one place before – they flew and drove out from all over the country. The mall was PACKED.
UPDATE: To get an idea about how many people were there. Watch this time lapse video that captured the 3.5 hour long parade (which was over a mile long of people wall to wall).
