Thousands of people—reportedly more than 30,000—showed up for Hillary Clinton’s star-studded rally on the mall at Independence Hall last night, about 10,000 more than was expected, making it the largest crowd of the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign.

Although the rally didn’t begin until about 8 p.m. when Bon Jovi took the stage followed by Bruce Springsteen, by 4 p.m. the line to enter the security gate at 4th and Chestnut was more than a mile long, winding around all the way down to Washington Avenue in South Philly.

In fact, it wasn’t until just before President Barack Obama finished his speech that security allowed in the last group of people onto the mall, just in time to see Hillary Clinton take the stage in front of the Visitor’s Center.

Whether you missed the big night or just want to relive it, here are 15 inspiring Instagram photos from last night’s rally on the mall.
