American Pride Rally Held in Wilmington

APRIL 13, 2006 -- On the heels of rallies held across the nation on immigration reform comes a another local rally to demonstrate American pride.

The American Pride Day rally was coordinated by Jacksonville DJ's from the popular radio show Mad Max in the Morning.  At 8:00am folks raised their flags at the Firehouse Bar and Grill off Market Street in Wilmington.

Even though the rally follows Monday's immigration rallies, organizers and participants say its strictly about showing support for their country, not being against legal immigration.
