Here’s the route for Women’s March on Charlotte this Saturday (and more details)

Organizers expect 3,000 to 5,000 demonstrators at the Women’s March on Charlotte scheduled for Saturday morning, which will wind through much of uptown.

The march is scheduled to coincide with a national demonstration Saturday in Washington, D.C., the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as president.

The mile-long route for the march, scheduled for 10 a.m.-12 p.m., starts at First Ward Park, goes down Tryon Street to Martin Luther King Drive and ends at Romare Bearden Park. Marchers are encouraged to arrive by 9:45 a.m.

“The route will allow access for wheelchairs, walkers and strollers,” organizers said in a message Wednesday. Children and well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.
