Sunday is President Trump’s 74th birthday, as well as National Flag Day, and several groups will be celebrating and showing their support with rallies across Florida. “Boaters for Trump” have organized a boat parade, or “Trumptilla,” that will begin at the Square Grouper Tiki Bar in Jupiter and head down the Intracoastal Waterway to the Southern Boulevard bridge and back. In addition, a group called “Trucks for Trump” gathered at Pirate’s Well Restaurant & Bar in Lake Park at 10 a.m. with plans to caravan to Southern Boulevard, then return to the restaurant for an after party. Motorcyclists with “Bikers for Trump” are meeting at the Cracker Barrel in Stuart and following the trucks to Southern Boulevard, then gathering at the Harley-Davidson store on 45th Street in West Palm Beach for an after party.

Yet another group, known as “Palm Beach Indivisibles,” has organized a “Caravan for Racial Justice” beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Dreher Park in West Palm Beach. An online flyer for the event states, “It’s Flag Day & a certain President’s birthday. Many of our brothers and sisters will never see another flag wave or birthday… Join us to send a positive message for JUSTICE.” Meanwhile, supporters for former Vice President, now Democrat nominee, Joe Biden, are also planning to support for their candidate. Biden supporters are set to meet across different locations in South Florida, including one in West Palm Beach, and then will drive past Trump properties. All of the participants are encouraged to adhere to CDC guidelines on social distancing, and will follow all state and local traffic laws. Pro-Trump flotillas were also planned on Sunday for Fort Lauderdale, Miami, the Keys, Tampa, Pensacola and Jacksonville, where the commander-in-chief is slated to be nominated for a second term in August.
