34. Per another article, the police chief has no problem with open carry at this event
Edited on Sun Aug-15-10 02:07 PM by ProgressiveProfessor
Royal Oak police "don't anticipate any issues" in dealing with festival patrons carrying handguns, Chief Christopher Jahnke said.

They won't be able to take a gun into a bar, "but they can go anywhere they want within the festival area," which will be fenced off and will have people openly consuming alcohol on the streets, Jahnke said.
