Billy Fried spoke with the Laguna Beach Police Department this past week about the upcoming drum circle. Billy Fried wrote about this in the Coastline Pilot.
Here is a excerpt: ” They assured me their intent isn’t to shut down the drum circle or close the parking lots, but they do want to get in front of any potential problems and cite people for drinking, doing drugs and engaging in any other behavior that puts people in jeopardy.
I respect their goal to protect us. And they are putting some positive, preventive measures in place such as:
• Telling people who park on the east side of Coast Highway to use the tunnel — I’m sure many don’t even know it’s there.
• Telling people who are dropping off their kids to be back before 10 p.m. or they will be unable to re-enter the lot.
• Handing out fliers reminding people of park regulations.
• Patrolling the event.
So if your intent is to come and enjoy the drumming, whether playing, dancing or watching, you have nothing to fear. Come on out and responsibly celebrate the last full moon of summer. This fabulous and dynamic cultural event runs from 7 to 10 p.m.”
