Some Wiregrass residents show their support for electronic bingo and march in Montgomery.
Three buses left Dothan this morning full of people expecting to make their voices heard.
Many had worked at country crossing until the facility was closed earlier this year because of the threat of a raid by the governor's anti-gaming task force.
It is being billed as a march, rally and concert for "jobs and justice"
"We deserve to have something in this county. The money that would come from Country Crossing will balance our budget and give money to the schools and seniors,” says Bingo supporter Diane Fox.
A free concert will follow the rally featuring the 1970's group "The Commodores" and country star John Anderson.
