The excitement was mounting Sunday as fans prepared for the final night of Taylor Swift's trio of concerts at Gil13tte Stadium.

Sunday's show in Foxboro, Massachusetts, will mark the 13th concert of Swift's Eras Tour -- 13, of course, being Swift's very famous lucky number.

The weather is expected to be much better after the area saw downpours during Saturday night's show -- though, as Swifties know, Swift has a reputation for performing well in the rain -- including years ago at Gillette Stadium.

So even though the weather was poor, fans wearing clear ponchos were ready to dance in a storm in their best dress, fearless, and Taylor took notice, officially proclaiming Saturday night's concert a "rain show."

Sitting at a piano on stage with rain-soaked hair, the singer addressed the crowd that appeared unbothered by the downpours.

"The fans and crowds in the New England, Boston, Foxboro, Massachusetts, area do not care if it rains. In fact, that kind of makes it more fun for you," Swift told the crowd as it erupted in thunderous applause. "And it makes it more fun for us because we just know that you guys are wild, you guys are just wild. You guys are up for it. And I love you so much for that, thank you."

Among those in the crowd Saturday was Patriots quarterback Mac Jones and his girlfriend Sophie Scott.

Ahead of Swift's final Foxboro show Sunday night, she took to Twitter to thank the "iconic" crowd that danced in the pouring rain with her Saturday night.

"Last night we all danced together in the rain for THE ENTIRE 3.5 HOUR SHOW in foxy Foxborough MA!! We've had rain shows at Gillette Stadium before but this was a full on deluge that never let up," she wrote in a tweet. "I just want to thank that iconic crowd!!! Love you so much you have no idea."

Taylor Swift fans were fired up Friday night in and around Foxboro, Massachusetts, battling bumper-to-bumper traffic to be at the first of the superstar's three shows at Gillette Stadium this weekend.

Swift's Eras Tour kicked off Friday night at Gillette when thousands of fans decked out in themed outfits, including TODAY's Jenna Bush Hager, were pouring into the stadium around rush hour.

"For concerts, it's a completely different group of people. Lots of them have never been here before, they don't know where they're going," Ann-Marie English said on Friday. "It's gridlock."

Foxboro Police had warned that the intersection of Route 1 and North Street would be closed at some point Friday due to the anticipated traffic congestion, with drivers only able to take a right turn.

Residents in town plan on hunkering down for the next few days but they say they're used to it by now.

From themed outfits to Taylor Swift cupcakes, businesses were also hoping to cash in on the crowds, having this date circled on their calendar for months, ever since the concert was first announced.

"When there's 100,000 people in town, it definitely brings an uptick in business for sure," said Union Straw general manager Craig Carreira.
