Newscast Media CHARLOTTE, NCCharlotte law enforcement officials estimate that roughly 30,000 people attended the historic CarolinaFest 2012 today in Uptown Charlotte. Despite the heat and rain, the mood was high in Charlotte today as delegates, members of the media, and local residents enjoyed the free, family–friendly festival. The festival was actually an Obama street party with Obama memorabilia and songs dedicated to him by the artists who performed.

"I am so happy that Charlotte was able to have the opportunity to open the convention experience to tens of thousands of more people than ever before. It was great to see both local residents and convention visitors pack Uptown Charlotte streets, frequent local restaurants, experience the Legacy Village, and  -- most importantly — have a great time. Uptown was certainly alive today," said Charlotte in 2012 Executive Director Dr. Dan Murrey.
