The Washington State Patrol estimated that about 350 people attended the “Tea Party” on the state Capitol steps Saturday.
The gathering coincided with events throughout the state and nation, including a major one in Washington, D.C. Olympia organizer Ken Morse said he aimed to have an educational event, rather than a protest.
Patrol Sgt. Mark Arras said a trooper on hand reported no problems.
Organizers of the event have posted video of the rally at their site, www.olympiateaparty.com.
Never miss a local story.
The gathering marked the fourth Taxed Enough Already event at or near the state Capitol since an event April 15 drew 4,500 to 5,000 people.
