They definitely should start running shuttles to the nearest camping areas, for a fee. Pay the fee and you get a bracelet that you wear all weekend. Seems like a no-brainer...

Cops are already out in full force, got stopped heading home from work yesterday for a crack in my windshield that has been there for over 2 years..... he was just looking to see if I was intoxicated. Be cautious and make wise decisions this weekend.

The visible lot generally stays empty most years anyway. The shenanigans and loads if drunk people are always further up in the willows along the river. And it hasn't been "some people", every year for at least the past five there's been 200+ people in that tiny little area......I know because that's where I've camped and where all my friends camp.

Doesn't Oscar Blues sponsor the Lyons Games? So they have a beer sponsor too but no shit show, maybe it's not just the alcohol but the type of people in the crowd.

They should expect a hit in money spent at the festival and local businesses...camping on the north side I always walked to the carnival or local places and ate. Probably only spent $50 on food and another $25 on useless stuff (I did buy a $45 dress last year...for a friend!) for the weekend but now I just bought all my food in Denver where it's cheaper and hang at the camp site. No desire to drive to town, find parking, then walk around a carnival.

Bring back the camping and add some more police if you don't like the rowdy actions.
