UPDATE: Mumford and Sons Preparations Underway
TROY -- More than 30,000 people are pouring into the city of Troy for a massive concert and festival in the heart of downtown. Grammy award-winning Mumford and Sons will take the stage Saturday night, but the party was already getting started Thursday night.
With so many people coming to Troy, there are a few restrictions you need to know about. You can't bring in your own food or drinks, but you are allowed one water bottle.
It's probably one of the biggest events to ever hit the streets of downtown Troy: the Mumford and Sons "Gentlemen of the Road Stopover" tour.
Event organizers and the city brought in hundreds of additional police officers and security guards.
If you do plan to join the massive street party, wear your walking shoes. Several downtown streets surrounding the venue are shut down.
"We do have detours set up. We just ask that you're patient and take a little extra time, plan ahead and everything should be fine," said Troy Public Service and Safety Director Patrick Titterington.
"We took a taxi from the airport and walked a good mile with our backpacks trying to find our campsites. But everything worked out and we are excited," said Becky Larson, who flew from Southern California.
The event is expected to have a $15 million to $20 million impact on the local economy.
Fans came to Troy from all over the country and the world to see Mumford and Sons.
Tickets to Mumford and Sons are still available. If you just want to go to the street fair, cost for entry is just five bucks.
TROY -- The city of Troy is bracing for more than 30,000 people to flood the downtown streets this weekend for a big-time concert. The Grammy award-winning group Mumford and Sons are performing on Saturday night, but the festivities have already started.
Local bands began performing Thursday evening. The music will be playing throughout the weekend.
Vendors have been setting up all day to get ready for the massive crowds expected. The concert and street fair is expected to have a $15-20 million impact on the local economy.
In addition to the main stage where Mumford and Sons will be performing, there are also smaller stages set up in the downtown area for local bands. People from all over the world are here, including a group of guys from Iceland.
"Very excited. Really excited. They're amazing, we've seen performances on YouTube and the net. We love it," said Arnarpall, a fan from Iceland.
Tickets to Mumford and Sons are still available. If you just want to go to the street fair, get some food and listen to local bands, cost for entry is just five bucks.
