Channeling the 'Rally to Restore Sanity' Attendance of 90,000+

— October 31, 2010 — Social Good
The 'Rally to Restore Sanity' attendance has been estimated between 87,000 and 250,000. The event to muster the American public with moderate political views was orchestrated by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who called it the 'March to Keep Fear Alive.'

In celebration of the 'Rally to Restore Sanity' attendance of possibly hundreds of thousands of people and some pretty hilarious signage, this is a selection of other public events that have drawn crowds, riots, flash mobs and masses through protests, publicity stunts and more.
