Clinton Campaign to Hold Post-DNC Rally Near Liberty Bell
The Hillary Clinton campaign has decided to stay in Philly for a day beyond the DNC this month. According to the National Parks Service, the campaign has reserved a part of Independence National Historical Park from 4 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Friday, July 29th. The campaign just announced that it will be for a public rally.
“The event will be an opportunity for Pennsylvanians to hear from Clinton after the convention and for Hillary for Pennsylvania to continue working toward achieving Clinton’s nationwide goal of registering and committing to vote three million people in this election,” according to a statement from the campaign.
The Clinton campaign’s reserved space stretches from Chestnut to Market between 5th and 6th steets, and also includes the People’s Plaza, according to a spokesperson from the National Parks Service. It’s a space that can accommodate large crowds — Pope Francis delivered a speech there when he visited last September.
Permits were issued to groups throughout the convention. Some of those groups include PA Republican Women on Monday July 25th, Yad Ezra Ministries, who will hold a live music worship event on Sunday July 24th, and a group of Bernie Sanders supporters called “Berners” who will hold daily rallies during the convention.
A full list of the granted permits can be found here.

The DNC will take place July 25th through the 28th at the Wells Fargo Center.
