Police, protesters gear up for Trump's visit to Great Falls

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS, Mont. -

Police and protesters are gearing up for President Donald Trump's visit to Great Falls on Thursday.
  
Workers were setting concrete barriers outside the ExpoPark, one of the visible signs of the security measures being put in place for the rally.
  
Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards says ExpoPark gates will open Thursday at 10:30 a.m.
  
The doors to the 6,600-seat Four Seasons Arena won't open until 1 p.m. There will be benches, food and nonalcoholic drinks available for early arrivals.
  
Trump is scheduled to speak at 4 p.m.
  
Edwards says an area west of the arena will be set aside for protesters.
  
At least one group is organizing an anti-Trump rally to be held outside the arena. Organizers say on their Facebook page that they will have speakers at the same time as Trump is scheduled to speak.
