42,000+ JWs in one Stadium for the DS!!

I love this shot because it shows the scale of the performance for these amateur actors. It was an amazing sight to see that the stadium was so full, all the way to the top row in most (but not all) sections.

 

The peak attendance on Sunday was over 42,000 people!! I can't believe it! But that is what was predicted by Boiani, I asked his opinion before the convention and he said there could be between 40 and 50 thousand. I didn't want to get my hopes up too much, so I was predicting between 30 and 40 thousand, I was so happy to see the huge number! It was so exciting. I tried to get as many pix as possible showing the size of the crowd.

 

They actually had a few sections closed off to keep the Spanish and English sides completely separate and not interefering.
