The big President Donald Trump "Keep America Great" Rally in Wildwood Tuesday, January 28 is quickly approaching.
Anyone planning to attend this once in a lifetime event?
It's interesting that Wildwood was chosen for the location in the middle of the winter. Also considering that the Convention Center only holds 7,500 people, with some news outlets reporting that there have been more than 100,000 requests for tickets.
There are a number of news reports suggesting that there will be parking problems, snarled traffic coming into Wildwood, etc.
It was an amazing event and was huge! Wished we would have went but the crowds on our much loved President was too bad for us
It's been a few years since I have been to Wildwood. I've been hearing a lot of back and forths on the trash left behind after the Trump rally. On one hand I love to "trash" Trump (no pun intended), but on the other hand, I have seen Wildwood on some wilder nights and I have seen crowd results in many places, sadly, it's been in my expierience, where any crowds go, trash follows. The tea parties, the Obama inaguration and according to recent internet posts, the Trump rally at Wildwood. It's my beleife that Wildwood is a nice place, large crowd come and there's trash to clean up. Trash gets cleaned up and Wildwood remains a nice place to go.
There is a Superbowl Sunday. If the place gets trashed Sunday night and into Monday morning - OR - if it remains nice and clean like it is now, I'd love to receive pictures between half time and daylight Monday at email@example.com - Thanks in advance
***I should have prefaced that this post was in no way intended to be partisan***
As the current Mayor of Wildwood, Pete Byron stated in a radio interview, "Check your party affiliation at the door" just having the President of the United States is visit, "it's going to be a tremendous economic shot in the arm for the town", as well as for Cape May County in general. It will be good for the economy as well as being good for publicity by putting Wildwood in the national spotlight. Although the Mayor did also say the rally is not a budgeted event and he doesn't know how much the event will end up costing the city.
Here is a link to a radio interview with the Mayor on the Dom Giordano Show on Talk Radio 1210 (1210 WPHT Philadelphia)...
(The radio station's Rich Zeoli and dom Giordano shows will set up shop starting at 5:30 am on the morning of the event for live broadcasts at Mulligan's Shore Bar and Grill. According to Mulligan's facebook page, they will be open for breakfast starting at 7am.)
For anyone who might be attending, here is a link to a NJ.com article on "everything you need to know" about the event vis-a-vis security, parking, etc...
The Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce also has information on their Facebook page and has a listing (and will be continuously updating as information becomes available) of area businesses that will be open during the event...
very unlikely that 100,000 tickets have been requested, lol.
no, I won't be there.
