A number of the Democratic Presidential candidates, who spoke at the Wing Ding, also took time to greet and speak with people lining the streets outside the Surf Ballroom, the location of the event.

Security was also a top priority for organizers, in light of last week's mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. Candidate Beto O'Rourke was scheduled to speak at the event but canceled to be with the people of his hometown of El Paso.
