HARRINGTON, Del.- GOP front-runner Donald Trump is scheduled to make his second stop on Delmarva in Harrington Friday.

Trump will speak at a rally scheduled to start at 4 p.m. at the Quillen Arena at the Delaware State Fairgrounds.

Delaware State Police are urging people to avoid the area both before and after the event if the are not attending. They say Route 13 will be busy.

Rob Arlett, the Delaware chairman for the Trump campaign, says the arena has no walls, so people should not be discouraged if they do not make it inside.

"If you can't get in, you can still have the ability to hear Mr. Trump's message," he said. "We are very confident about that."

Doors to the event open at noon, but the campaign and police are urging people to show up early.

Trump's Wednesday rally at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, Md. drew thousands of people. There were reportedly 18,000 tickets given out to the event, but only 2,900 people were able to enter the gymnasium. Arlett says so many tickets are given out, because there is no way to accurately predict how many people will actually show up to a political event.

There were mixed emotions from WBOC viewers in Kent County today. Windsome Palmer of Dover says she will not be going to Trump's rally.

"No, I'm not [going]," she said. "Because I'm not a fan of Trump. He doesn't like females, he's not a woman person. I don't think he has anything to offer me."

Brandy Mason is from Magnolia, and she volunteers for the Trump campaign office in downtown Dover.

"It shows that he cares about the common people," she said. "I mean I have never seen anybody come here other than Obama."
