New Holiday Tradition
Chicago has "Close the beaches on Memorial Day."
- North ave. Beach was so out of control 1860 gave out order to close beach around 1930 hrs. 30 sec. later 1800x rescinded order and just said to close down the boat house. Lmao. didn't same thing happen last year?
- Chicago police were called to North Avenue Beach to break up a fight Sunday night.
The beach was crowded with people who were enjoying the day's record high temperatures.
But things got too heated, when a fight broke out on the beach.
A witness says the altercation started small, but then it spread.
Police SUVs arrived at the scene to break up the crowd.
Officials did not say if any arrests were made.
Police shut down North Avenue Beach in 2011.
Officials said too many people were overcome by heat, and rescuers had a hard time reaching victims because of the crowds.
Ah yes, the oft repeated lie that people near 6 quadrillion gallons of freshwater can't find a way to keep cool while a few hundred gang bangers fight in full view of the public, even though ambulances have been responding to the lakefront for about 100 years or so.
