GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) — It’s a party that used to draw thousands of people to Galveston Island. Now, “Galveston Beach Party” has been called off. When I started covering this event 20 years ago, traffic was so bad you could hardly get on the island. Today there is hardly any sign the event is coming. The city of Galveston put out barricades just in case of big crowds, saying that a cancelled Beach Party weekend does not cancel its responsibility for public safety. “We are definitely providing public safety, sanitation and refuse,” said city spokesperson Alicia Cahill.
Most of the time the weather is nice for BCR. There has been years where its been a little cold, but this is the first time that rain was an issue.
It was an interesting mix of people this year at BCR. There were a lot of ‘families’ in town, so the landscape was not as chocolate as in years past. Although the crowd was light we still had a good time.
I was informed by email that the information regarding the concert at the Bandshell was posted in error. According to the email BET has no involvement in the concerts at the Bandshell. So as of this moment please disregard the entry about a BET concert at BCR this year.
