The finale ceremonies were very well attended. Only superlatives can describe it - stirring music, a choir of 1,607 voices, an orchestra with members from across the US, drama that laid out the Jamestown story, warts and all, more orchestra music to accompany the fireworks - spectacular!
Attendance at the 3-day event was 70,000. For me the only problem was not enough time to see and do all that I would have liked! Even the shuttles worked better than I thought.
