GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – Glens Falls Mayor Jack Diamond says Wednesday night's Phish concert was a "unqualified success."
More than 7,500 people went to the sold out Phish concert at the Civic Center on Wednesday night. City officials reported that there was one felony arrest and 11 misdemeanor arrests throughout the night.
"It was a great crowd and things went very well," Mayor John Diamond said. "All in all, I don't think we could ask for a better outcome."
There were no arrests made inside the venue and nothing "unusual" was reported during the event.
However, four people did have to be taken to the Glens Falls Hospital during the event.
The Police Department, Fire Department and Public Works crew in the city is being praised for their teamwork throughout the night.
"I think this demonstrates that the city is capable of hosting large-scale events in a safe, orderly manner," Mayor Diamond said. "This was a real success and we hope to be able to do it again."
