It’s here! The Democratic National Convention (DNC) has finally began! For those who didn’t scurry out of town to avoid the mayhem, this convention promises to have at least one event for you.
Festivities for the public kicked off around 10 am today, and boy could you tell! Though today was my first time riding the Lynx light rail, from what I heard, it has never been that packed! The rail cars were stuffed with those sitting, standing, and sliding! Next stop…Carolina Fest-The DNC’s family-friendly festival, complete with music, information booths, fun activities and more.
The highlight of the event may have been Fuel Pizza’s booth. Led by a Fuel chef, children were able to make a pizza from scratch using fresh, locally grown vegetables. After crafting their pizzas, children stood by patiently waiting for their numbers to be called, the sign that their pizza was ready! As an added bonus, Fuel served ice cold water for everyone. The booth quickly became a popular stop!
Day one of the DNC…check.
