    You use a lot of or lots of (not lot of) in front of a noun when you are talking about a large number of people or things, or a large quantity or amount of something. Lots of should be avoided in a formal style.

    Does it mean both of these sentences are correct?
    1.There were lots of people in procession.
    2.There were a lot of people in procession.
