SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Phish fans are filling up Saratoga Springs. The band from Burlington is on a reunion tour and will play at SPAC for three nights, starting Friday.
Phish fans started showing up on Monday for the three day run, making for a very busy weekend.
Concert goers say every motel, hotel and camp ground in the area are packed.
The band has played at SPAC before, but coming right after a holiday is making this time around a little different. Officials are warning people of traffic congestion, but concert goers say it's all worth it.
"They can expect large traffic delays in and around SPAC. Probably exit 13 off the Northway. Probably expect that for the next couple days," said Saratoga Springs Police Chief Christopher Cole.
“The traffic sucks, but it something you have to deal with to go to the show. Just another aspect," said Jonathan Rienerth of Virginia.
Phish fans are known for their devotion to the band, following the group from city to city.
