FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Cars paraded with President Donald Trump flags up and down Interstate 469 Sunday afternoon.
Rally participant Reid Hobbs says the "Circle the Fort 469 Trump Caravan Rally" was something to remember.
“I think it’s going to motivate a lot of people to be more involved. Seeing all the people get together like that just shows you how many people are for Trump,” said Hobbs.
Hobbs says the COVID-19 restrictions are why participants chose to ride in their vehicles versus rally in groups.
Participants started the rally ride in Wabash County and drove through Fort Wayne, 'looping' I-469.
Event co-organizer Laura Cole of the Republican Party of Wabash County says the 25-mile 'Trump Train' circled around the highway for almost four hours.
“About a month ago we put the Facebook page up. And we were just going to do it small and have a rally within Wabash County, but we just decided to go big or go home,” said Cole.
Cole says the public's response was overwhelming, garnering support from local law enforcement and even out-of-state supporters.
Cole says, “It was a huge response. A lot of shares, a lot of questions, organizing, and asking where people were going to meet along the way.”
