On Friday afternoon a crowd could be seen starting to gather at the Heritage Park Trail footpath, in the area around North Second Avenue near Downtown Rome.
The crowd there could be seen from the roadway on the levee holding up signs and American flags to peacefully protest against potential local COVID-19 vaccine mandates, as well as to protect medical freedom and privacy.
Rome City Police parked at the scene in front of the protest area as many passing cars drove by slowly to observe the event.
