Hundreds gather for Wausau “George Floyd March”

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- Hundreds of people gathered at the 400 Block Saturday morning for a "George Floyd March."

They began marching around 10:30 AM along a pre-determined route.

Wausau Police blocked off roads along the marching route.

Originally described as a silent march on the Facebook event description, numerous chants of "black lives matter" and "say his name... George Floyd" rang out through the crowd.

As of 1:30 p.m. Saturday roads were back open in the downtown area, and police say there were no incidents.

"The George Floyd march left the 400 Block as scheduled and concluded at City Hall. The event unfolded without a single incident. Thanks to all those who came out to participate, and huge thanks to the organizers of this peaceful event," Wausau police said in a Facebook post.

News 9 has a team covering this event and will continue to update this story.
