Music Fans Head Home After Firefly Festival

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Thousands of music fans from around the country are heading home after the three-day Firefly Music Festival in Dover.
    
State transportation officials say traffic is flowing smoothly Monday as concertgoers leave the festival site near Dover Downs speedway.
    
Officials say campgrounds emptied quickly early Monday, with occupancy dropping from about 80 percent at dawn to about 5 percent by late Monday morning.
    
Friday's start of the festival caused huge traffic tie-ups as many of the 65,000 fans converged on Dover at the same time, but officials say there are few problems with outbound traffic as fans began leaving gradually Sunday night.
    
Festival organizers and Dover Downs officials are anticipating a long-term business relationship. They are already looking forward to next year's event, but no details have been announced.
