ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - An estimated crowd of 50,000 people showed up for the NFL Kickoff concert and festivities.
That's according to NFL Driector of Communications Joanna Hunter. In the days leading up to the event, the NFL and authorities were predicting a crowd between 20,000 and 30,000.
Director of Packers Secruity Doug Collins says they planned for a worst case secenio that would double attendance of the the normal 73,000 ticket holders plus tailgaters in the area.
The free concert went down without a hitch or any major problems. The Green Bay Fire Department says it responded to nearly 50 mostly heat related medical calls.
Officials had to bring in additional trash cans because many there were overflowing.
Ashwaubenon Public Safety Director Eric Dunning says a section of Holmgren Way between Brett Farve Pass and Potts Avenue had to be closed because the crowds were over spilling into the street.
