HARTFORD, Conn. (WFSB) - Hartford Police have issued a traffic advisory for Saturday night due to the Yard Goats game, the Hartford Athletic team and the KISS concert taking place all around 7 p.m.

Officials are prepping for a big night tomorrow here in Hartford, with three major events all happening at the same time.

Hartford is hosting a Yard Goats game, a Hartford Athletics game, and a KISS concert.

The Hartford Yard Goats will take on the Portland Sea Dogs at Dunkin Donuts Park. At the same time, Hartford Athletics will play the New York Red Bulls II at Dillon Stadium. Both games start at 7:00 pm.

The long-awaited KISS concert will kick off at the Xfinity theater at 7:30 tonight.

All three events are expected to bring in huge crowds.

Ahead of all three games, Hartford Police have issued a traffic advisory for Weston and Market Streets.

These events will bring more people to the downtown area, so police are asking people to plan ahead and be patient.

Matt Stockley said, “So when I came down 91 traffic was crazy, and I ended up getting off at maybe Park Ave and took a crazy route here but it was totally worth it.”
