ASBURY PARK— The city will hold special information meetings Monday, May 7, and Tuesday, May 8, to get everyone on board for the upcoming three-day Bamboozle festival of pop, rock, metal and comedy on the beach May 18-20.
The Monday meeting for city residients will be at 6:30 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre and the Tuesday meeting for local businesses will be at 8 a.m. in the City Council chambers. An evening meeting for business owners also is being finalized.
The city will give final details for traffic management, vendors and other plans to handle a large crowd over three days.
City officials Wednesday night agreed to waive restrictions on the consumption of alcohol on beaches to allow drinking of alcoholic beverages in specific areas during the festival, City Attorney Frederick C. Raffetto said.
That waiver still had to get a final approval from the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, Raffetto said.
