See the event for yourself courtesy of this slideshow direct from Obama's rally in Chicago.
Barack Obama closed his campaign with a massive outdoor public event — a street party in downtown Chicago centered on Grant Park, near the Lake Michigan waterfront. The campaign distributed 70,000 tickets to the official event, but many more came down for the party.
More images will be added to this slideshow as the night continues.
