Take 20,000 people, add copious amounts of alcohol and more than 100 decibels of heart-pounding, testosterone-driving rock music and you'd almost expect some problems.

Yet, things were pretty uneventful at last night's Bon Jovi concert at Centennial Park, at least from a policing perspective.

Sarnia police Const. Bill Baines said the crowd was well-behaved and the two dozen officers hired for added security reported no issues.

"It was a very orderly event. When the concert ended the crowd dispersed quietly."

Over the festival's 10 years, many shows have run smoothly, Baines said. He credits the planning that goes into each concert by promoters Jim and Michele Stokley, with a specific focus on security.

"All in all Bayfest has been a very well-run event."

Michele Stokley said last night's concert went without a hitch.

After four years of trying to get the New Jersey rockers to come to town, Stokley said the show was well worth the effort.

"It was a great show. Things went so smoothly."
