"Conservatives in Colorado Springs and in cities across the country rallied Wednesday to protest bailouts, handouts, earmarks and a host of other government sins real or perceived.
About 1,500 gathered in Acacia Park downtown to hear speakers rail against stimulus spending, budget deficits, mortgage relief and efforts to repair the financial market...."
Update for Carson City, Nevada...local radio station in Reno reporting the Carson cops estimate 3,000-patriots...the largest political demonstration in state history.
Big time news! Pinging the Alabama list for results!
To those attending the Birmingham Rally tonight, good luck!
I'm guessing that a thorough tracking of the number of people protesting today would be very close to 4.2 million.
According to WHOI, the police gave the crowd at 3,000 in Peoria on a warm, spring day.
Of course, Peoria only has 110,000 people, so that’s a good turnout.

That is most excellent!
I heard from one of my Facebook friends that it was about 600.
BTW: I've met the organizer and he seems like a great guy.
2000 plus was talked about right here on FR, and posted on at least two other websites that were attempting to track them all.
A policeman at the scene estimated the Santa Ana CA protest at about 2000.
Velveeta, I note that you're not currently sporting a tagline....may I suggest your own fine words as your new one?
Madison WI 8000+
DO YOU HAVE PICS? does anyone?
Sweet! Home of some of my ancestors. Thank you for Tea-Partying.
A participant at the Wilmington, DE, party said her husband was at the Philadelphia one and estimated only 200. :-(
Sad to hear that from the birthplace of the Republic.
I don’t know if this was posted yet, but Madison, Wisconsin had between 5000 and 6000 people.
Lincolnton, NC - 250-300
Tucson, AZ, 2000+
(leftist paper reported that number — surprisingly seems accurate -— and I would concur, based on visual scan)
I’m guesstimating, because we only got to stay for about 45 minutes, but I think there was at least 200 or so in my town,
Allen, TX!! WoooooooT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :*)
Washington DC 2000-3000.
Heavy rain, so probably a lower than expected turnout.
There were four or five plus TEA Parties around the northwest Ohio area, but don’t know where to get numbers.
(couldn’t go, had to work to pay taxes-—I think ‘til August now)
