This weekend’s Budweiser Made in America Festival is bound to be a bit crazy, with an additional estimated 50,000 people crowding the Parkway daily.

So here’s an insider’s guide, courtesy of the Police Department and Comcast’s Philly in Focus.

The two organizations teamed up to offer a visual mobile map of navigating the masses, using Pictour, an app that helps create point-by-point tours, according to a Police Department blog post.

Find the tool here. Download it here.

The interactive tool points out SEPTA stops, public bathrooms and police informational beacons (15 ft. tall landmarks where police will be stationed).
