(Philadelphia) -- Hillary Clinton's campaign is planning an event on Independence Mall in Philadelphia the day after the Democratic National Convention ends.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's campaign has been issued a permit from the National Park Service for a ``public assembly'' on July 29, according to a park service schedule of events during the week of the convention.

The permit includes a stretch of park near the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

It wasn't clear when the permit was issued or when the campaign applied for it.

The location can host sizable crowds: Pope Francis delivered a speech on religious freedom and immigration in front of about 40,000 people at Independence Hall during his Philadelphia visit in September.

The convention is July 25-28 at the Wells Fargo Center.
