July 4 2009 Traverse City Tea Party

Traverse City couldn’t have had better weather for a Tea Party.  With about 300-350 in attendance, spirits were high. After a few speakers, the event broke into smaller groups occupying several areas to draw attention from passers by in traffic.  Because of the Cherry Festival Starting today, Traverse City had no shortage of Vehicles and probably 10-15,000 folks were able to see the original signs and messages the Tea Partiers presented.
