Things you should know if you are going to the rally---- August can be hot so bring plenty of water. There are plenty of spots for relatively cheap food and drinks. There are public restrooms available at Lexington Center directly across the street from Triangle Park. There is plenty of pay parking within a block or two of Triangle Park and some free parking usually found on and beyond 2nd Street.
