NY School District Cancels School for Phish Shows

As reported by Business Insider here, the Monticello school district in New York has cancelled classes on Thursday and Friday in preparation for the Phish invasion that’s about to take place.  However, I’m skeptical as to just how big this “invasion” is going to be seeing as none of the Bethel shows have sold out, and yesterday there were tons of pavilion tickets rereleased via TicketMaster.  I supposed we’ll find out tomorrow.

From Business Insider:

The Monticello school district in New York decided to shut down classes today and tomorrow, fearing the effects of heavy traffic headed to a three-day Phish festival.

We didn’t really know these things were still such juggernauts, but okay.

Apparently, the town of Bethel is expecting 17,000 people to stream in starting tomorrow morning.

Many of them will be camping — and no doubt taking advantage of the “designated smoking areas” outlined on the venue’s website.
