Buffalo, NY (WKBW) -- Struggling business owners and Tea Party activists are planning to hold massive demonstrations to greet President Barack Obama next week.

"We could probably see 400 or 500 people," said Western New York Tea Party organizer Rus Thompson.

The Buffalo police and fire departments are also planning to demonstrate when the President comes to town on Thursday.

The White House is still planning the President's trip. An itinerary is expected sometime early next week.
