Cold weather did not deter throngs of greater Philadelphia residents this weekend from gathering for a rally in support of President Donald Trump.
On Saturday, hundreds of people attended an event Saturday in Neshaminy State Park in Bucks County where Trump supporters waved American flags and "Make America Great Again" signs.
The demonstration was organized by People4Trump in Southeast Pennsylvania, an activist group founded by Jim Worthington, as part of Spirit of America rallies that were held nationwide.
"They love their country and they love what Donald Trump represents, which is about making America first," said Worthington, who was a delegate at last year's Republican National Convention.
Organizers explained that the gathering was planned in response to anti-Trump protests that have been conducted since the November election to share their vision for the nation's future. Speakers frequently voiced opinions on the nation's security, immigration, the economy, and law and order.
While no incidents were reported at the Bucks County event, dozens of arrests were made elsewhere in the country as Trump supporters and counter-protesters clashed.
Here are some scenes from the local event:
