The Fort Myers Florida Tea Party, held at Centennial Park at 5pm, was a well organized affair, spearheaded by WINK Radio’s Mandy Connell. Not only is she an outstanding conservative talk host, she is simply an outstanding person. Also on the agenda was Henry Mihet, formerly from Rumania and now a US citizen, who gave a rousing talk on what the US means to him. There were formation flybys by smoke equipped T-6s and live music, mainly patriotic songs. The crowd estimate given at the event was at least 6,000.
