Notice the big tent? The one for 3,000 people that takes up most of a downtown city block? The roughly 150- by-200-foot tent was erected by the Church of Scientology to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Scientology training ship Freewinds. Church spokeswoman Pat Harney said the celebration usually is held in the church's auditorium. But because of renovations and because Ruth Eckerd Hall wasn't available on all the dates the church wanted, Scientologists put up their own tent on an empty lot south of Franklin Street and just east of Garden Street. Festivities are expected to last throughout July, Harney said.
