New location unveiled for WYD 2013 main events in Rio

29 November, 2012 ( Rio de Janeiro's Guaratiba neighborhood will host the vigil on Saturday, July 27, and the closing Mass for World Youth Day 2013.

The organizing committee made the decision during a last minute meeting. The original location was scheduled to be the Santa Cruz Air Force Base. However, organizers felt it would not be able to accommodate the more than 2 million people expected to attend.

The world-renown Copacabana district will remain as the location for the first few events for  World Youth Day.
