TULSA, Okla. -

All eyes are on Tulsa hours away from President Donald Trump's rally.

Crowds of people have been lined up outside the BOK Center all week, dozens of streets are closed to drivers, and 10-foot-tall metal gates line miles of downtown Tulsa. There was a curfew that would have been in effect, but the City of Tulsa rescinded it Friday afternoon.

Currently, the Secret Service does have a "secure zone" around the BOK center to keep the area clear of anyone that could potentially cause trouble. People can be out and about in downtown as long as they stay outside the metal gates. Trump supporters say they've just excited to get as close to the President as possible.

"Maybe crazy but the closer I can get to him I'd like to shake his hand hug his neck but I know it won't happen but I'd like to," said support Nick Reich.

Doors are scheduled to open at 3 p.m. Masks and hand sanitizer will be distributed -- but visitors are not required to use either.
