The day was sweltering at a balmy 91 degrees and high humidity but that didn't stop Grunt Style with interacting with fans and passing out a whopping 1500 swag bags filled with stickers, beer coozies and flyers. Grunt Style's CEO Daniel Alarik led the opening ceremony by leading the posting of the colors and leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.[caption id="attachment_358" align="aligncenter" width="700"]
