Public Square, one of the key protest sites at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this week, was relatively quiet Thursday afternoon ahead of Donald Trump’s Republican nomination speech.

With the exception of a protest of about 10 people, and an open-carry group with a handful of people, most demonstrations consisted of one person holding a sign and occasionally chatting with passersby.

One man, who gave his name only as Gilligan, was performing magic tricks with a sign behind him that read, “Make America Magical Again.”

An employee of the Cleveland Public Library was handing out buttons, books and pens and telling people to “make America read again.”

On a large expanse of grass, one man was blowing large bubbles and calling on people to “feel the wind god.” He declined to give his name.
