More than 8,000 people are expected for the 9:45 event. Doors open at 8a.

Attorneys throughout the area received emails Friday warning of possible disruptions on Tuesday morning for the first hearings of the day. But as of Friday evening, the schedule at the South County Courthouse remains unchanged.

Some are expecting traffic to be “nightmarish” on Atlantic Avenue and all area feeder roads, including Jog, Military Trail and I-95. A normal morning on Atlantic Avenue is bad. Add a Presidential Motorcade, Secret Service, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputies and Delray Beach Police with at least 8,000 attendees and a standstill is likely. has asked the Clerk's office for guidance. We will pass it on when it is received.

The Tennis Center is located at 200 West Atlantic Avenue.
