Pope Francis is expected to draw 2.3 million spectators at his main event on the outskirts of Mexico City in February.

Government officials in the State of Mexico said 10,000 state police officers will be assigned to keep the peace at a 5.5-mile (8.8 kilometer) motorcade and rally on Feb. 14.

Mexico State Gov. Eruviel Avila said that medical and aid facilities will be set up for the event, scheduled to take place in the city of Ecatepec.

Ecatepec is located just north of Mexico City. Bleachers will put along a main boulevard for the motorcade; about 300,000 are expected to attend the mass.

The pope will begin the visit in Mexico City on Feb. 12. He will also visit the states of Chiapas, Michoacan and Chihuahua.
