The main tea party event for the Kansas City area, Tax Day, 2010, was the Community America Ballpark in KCK, from 3:00-9:00pm. It was sponsored by KC Political Chips, and MC’ed by KMBZ’s Darla Jaye. KCTV reported “thousands” of tea partiers, so I’m going with that until I hear a more specific number.
The place was teeming with tea partiers, who were treated to a well organized, and very enjoyable event. Speakers included, Kris Kobach, who’s running for KS Sec. of State, 710 conservative DJ, Chris Stigall, and Obama’s dear, second cousin once removed, Dr. Milton Wolf, who really, really doesn’t like Obamacare.

Okay, here’s some amateur video of Kris Kobach’s speech:
