After The Event
The March went well. Because of other events going on/hot weather/ etc, the March consisted of a few people. A few people waved and honked during some parts of the March. It was a nice and productive way to spend a Saturday and to honor and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Loving Day Decision that brought Marriage Equality for those in Interacial Unions.
