Thank you so much for watching it! We couldn't make it to the park until 11am and we thought that it would be packed with limited standing room, but there were plenty of available seats on the bleachers. We scored a front row spot right in front of the Carthay Circle, which was perfect. There were some people who were sitting next to us that got there at 8am and they said it was surprisingly empty. Some people just left blankets and jackets to save seats and went around the park, but we were too scared we'd somehow lose our seats, so we traded off for breaks every now and then. But, all in all, we waited for 6 hours until the arrivals started at 5pm and it was worth it.
