There were aerial views, all right, and they showed tens of thousands of people at Bader Field having the times of their lives. With the exception of some brief tie-ups at the Albany Avenue monument — which jams up on a Tuesday night in January — there was no traffic purgatory.
Thousands of people — from all over the region and country, and some from abroad — trickled into Bader Field throughout the day on Friday, from when doors opened at 1pm till close to 9pm.
