YORK COUNTY -—The Glenn Beck rally in Washington, DC is expected to draw 300,000 people. Local businesses are getting a boost because of it.
At Bailey's Coach in York County, all of their seats are sold out. They are chartering 5 busses and sold individual tickets to fill the rest. That's a total of more than 450,000 people heading to hear Glenn Beck.
His rally, titled "Restoring Honor," features Sarah Palin. It's being pitched as a non-political gathering to restore American Values.
The event is getting some criticism though. It's set for this Saturday at Lincoln Memorial. That is the anniversary and place of Martin Luther King Jr's famous I Have A Dream speech.
But for local businesses like Bailey's, it just means income. "There must be huge support for Glenn Beck," says president John Bailey. "I have not seen interest in any one single event like this since Barack Obama's inauguration.
Charter companies in Lancaster County are booked as well.
If you don't have a bus ticket but still want to go to the rally, event organizers suggest driving to an outer Metrorail and taking that in to the Lincoln Memorial.
