Vehicles filed into Darien Lake, full of excited Zac Brown Band fans.
“This is our second sellout with the new parking policy,” Steve Hallowell, Darien Director of Marketing and Sales.
The new policy: all concert goers must park or be dropped off on the property. As for Saturday, that meant over 21,000 people.
“Now you have to expect that there are 20,000 other people trying to park in the same spot,” said Brittany Besper, as she entered the concert. She told us parking on the property went much smoother Saturday than before for the Jason Alden concert.
“It took us an hour less to park,” said Besper.
“Actually, it was moving pretty good,” said David Fuest, who was grilling in the parking lot. “It started with six lanes and moving to three lanes in here, but actually it was pretty good. It took us about 15 minutes to get in.”
Adding that sixth lane is something Darien Lake Marketing Director Steve Hallowell says they did after the congestion before the Jason Alden concert.
