HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Dozens of people gathered at Lowe Mill to support marriage equality.
The Bloom Wagon -- a van on a nationwide mission to spread happiness -- organized the artistic project.
In the midst of the Alabama state court challenging a federal order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, Huntsville residents brought blankets, frisbees, and musical instruments out on the east lawn -- to send a message about equal love.
"We're asking to paint 4x4 canvases with a rainbow, their own interpretation of a rainbow," said Bloom Wagon owner Becky Fromm. "Then we're putting them all together to create a community art mural, and then we're going to donate that."
Fromm says that having many same-sex friends made the Alabama issue hit home, and she said it was perfect for her Spread Happy, Love is Love mission.
The Bloom Wagon's tour is stopping at a number of events around the country to show support for different causes, ultimately ending in Washington.
