Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar arrived at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis on Sunday afternoon after saying on Twitter she would make a "big announcement," which prompted supporters to show up in droves in anticipation of her anticipated presidential bid.
Klobuchar advised supporters to "wear warm clothes" — and it's easy to see why in the photos from the event.
The forecast for Sunday in Minneapolis was for snow and a high of 19 degrees Fahrenheit...
...but the Weather Channel noted it felt more like seven degrees.
The frigid weather didn't seem to deter Klobuchar's supporters.
They turned out with signs and plenty of warm clothing.
People seemed to be in high spirits despite the weather.
On Instagram, dozens posted photos of the bundled-up crowd.
Snow appeared to be falling heavily...
...but nobody seemed to mind.
The stage was set...
...and the sound check carried on.
Workers cleared off walkways as snow continued to fall.
The snow continued as Klobuchar arrived and announced the kickoff of her 2020 presidential campaign.
"Today … in our nation's heartland, at a time when we must heal the heart of our democracy and renew our commitment to the common good, I stand before you … to announce my candidacy for President of the United States," Klobuchar said while standing on a snow-covered stage.
