Downtown Tulsa Tea Party Huge Success
Reasonable estimates for the event place the peak attendance at between 750 to 1000. It's always hard to pin a number of total attendance because you don't know how many came and went, but it's safe to say that the event dwarfed the inaugural Tulsa Tea Party that was held months back.
It will be interesting to how many show up at the Veteran's Park event from 5 PM to 7 PM, given that a lot of people said they were attending both. Throw in some of the estimated 1500 people at the LaFortune Park Tea Party and the Veteran's Park event could end up in the same range.
Provided are a few photos Cheryl and I took from today's event plus an aerial shot provided by KOTV. The top-left photo is Fox Radio's John Gibson whipping up the crowd. Of course, the upper-right photo is yours truly whipping up the crowd. There was a lot of crowd whipping going on at the Civic Center Plaza today.
