GLENS FALLS – Wednesday night’s Phish concert was deemed a success by city officials.
The band attracted a sell-out crowd of more than 7,500 fans.
Mayor John Diamond says the crowd was very well-behaved and caused very few incidents.
No arrest were made inside the venue.
Police say the after-concert activity in the downtown area was busy but peaceful.
There was one felony arrest and 11 misdemeanor arrests.
“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.”
