All's (relatively) quiet on Harriet Island

Posted at 6:45 PM on September 1, 2008 by Molly Bloom (0 Comments)

MPR reporter Matt Peikien reports that the SEIU Labor Day Festival is a family-friendly, peaceful affair.

After the requisite bag check and the request to leave protest signs at the door, there is little police presence inside the event. There are people playing hacky sack and dancing while The Pharcyde performs and others waving to Republican delegates on a nearby river boat. Quite different from the scene on the other side of the river where people were detained only a little while ago.
