On Friday, April 15th, 2011, we held our Third Annual Orlando Tax Day Tea Party at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. The event was schedule from 4:00 - 6:00pm, but with such incredible and humbling dedication, patriots not only arrived early, but stayed until the end which was well past 7:30pm. The following is from a post on our site, FloridaPoliticalPress.com, written by Tom Tillison, Sr. Editor:

The 3rd Annual Tax Day Tea Party was held here in Orlando on Friday afternoon and by all measures was a great success! Perhaps, the best one yet…
Well over 2,000 fellow patriots turned out for the 4:00PM early start and stayed put for the next three hours as the Central Florida Tea Party Council and the Fair Tax Patriots put on one heck of a show.
The day featured Marco Rubio, Herman Cain, Ralph Reed, Mike Haridopolos among others and had a few pleasant surprises including ‘Joe the Plumber’ and Rep. Sandy Adams, fresh from her latest session in Washington, D.C.
The event garnered a lot of national attention as Herman Cain was interviewed live on FoxNews during the event and Marco Rubio was featured on ‘On The Record With Greta Van Susteren’ and Breitbart TV for deftly handling a heckler during his speech. Rubio actually congratulated the misguided soul for being his very first heckler!
