Re: Birthday bash; Drunk teens ‘celebrate,’ July 4.
As a resident of White Rock, I have enjoyed many celebrations of one kind or another on the “front.”
This year’s Canada Day events were lower keyed than most, but everyone seemed to be taking advantage of the great weather.
Just before the fireworks, we went for a walk along the promenade to the pier. I have never seen so many young people out and about for such an event. Although we didn’t see any problems, my partner was concerned about the amount of alcohol being consumed and the size and density of this pack of raging hormones.
We quickly exited and went home to watch the fireworks.
The display was the best we’ve seen in years. Both the timing – so you could see individual bursts – and the variety – many new and different ones – was wonderful.
I was also pleased to learn that our RCMP detachment handled the boisterous crowd with such professionalism.
It had all the elements to turn ugly very fast. Well Done.
