There will also be stricter enforcement of open containers, increased street patrols in the surrounding residential area and we have instituted a traffic management plan to ensure that emergency vehicles and pedestrian traffic flows remain safe and well-marked. Charter bus companies have been made aware of the open container law and all buses will be met by law enforcement to prevent unruly groups from attending the event."
