He’s the only candidate for President who has supporters passionate enough about his message to set up a festival in his honor.
Like him or not, Presidential candidate Ron Paul is one of the most iconic political figures of modern times. So it is fitting that his supporters are planning an event called Paul Festival 2012 at the Florida Fairgrounds in Tampa, Fla., right before the Republican National Convention.
If everything goes as planned Paul Festival 2012 will run from Aug. 24-26, ending the day before the convention begins.
Details about the event were still sketchy at the time of this report, but organizers are working to put together a celebration of liberty in honor of Paul, complete with musical acts, speakers and celebrity guests.
From the event website:
With Dr. Paul’s growing support among celebrities and musicians, it is our hope to accommodate that change through a momentous 3-day Festival which will include many of Dr. Paul’s celebrity-supporters.
Our goal is to have musical acts (of different genres), comedy, speakers, celebrity appearances with pictures and autographs, book signings, big screens showing Dr. Paul’s famous speeches, vendors of all sorts, and really great food! It will be all inclusive – family friendly during the day, and anything that is adult oriented will be held during the evening hours.
Our team is working on finalizing a venue and the dates for this festival – while concurrently contacting musicians, celebrities, speakers, and V.I.P. s who either support, or have officially endorsed Ron Paul for President 2012.
It is our belief that this will be the biggest celebration of Liberty the world has ever seen – a tribute to Ron Paul and the message of freedom. Be a part of history!
The festival is expected to draw a crowd of more than 20,000 attendees. International Business Times speculated in a recent report that Paul’s supporters could upstage those of Republican establishment favorite Mitt Romney in Tampa.
