Traverse City isn’t a big city, so the turn out wasn’t like that in OKC, which Michael wrote about below. But I was thrilled with the several hundred people who came out to protest big government spending, regulation, and taxes among other issues. It was a beautiful day. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was about 53 degrees. And the location was simply gorgeous. We were at the corner of Grandview Avenue and Union Street, with the Grand Traverse Bay behind us. It was a very busy intersection with cars passing both ways honking their horns enthusiastically in support. It was a great experience.
I interviewed a few people who attended. I’m uploading the videos now and will post them later tonight.
In the mean time, here are some photos.

Of course, my three babies.
Update: More information about the TC Tea Party here. According to dmarks, 650 people were there. That’s a great turnout for a small town.
