About That Giant Stage on the Mall “a giant religious revival event which organizers claim will draw more than 350,000 people”

A reader reports:

“Over the last week, I have watched as two enormous stages have been erected in the grassy area north of the monument. The whole area has been fenced off and there are generators and trailers everywhere. Finally curious enough about what was happening, I looked on the internet and saw this is part of a giant religious revival event which organizers claim will draw more than 350,000 people.

Be one of a million standing for Jesus on 7.16.16.”

Looks like they are expecting a whole lot of people. The footprint is enormous. And someone said the pope is going to be speaking to the crowd via video? Unconfirmed. Unsurprisingly, the music from the stage was really bad. Even more than other places, the Mall is packed with people playing Pokemon Go. If you can handle the crowds, the people watching on Saturday could be amazing.”
