Texas Beach Party Called Off
This event is also known as Kappa Beach Party or Kappa Beach Fest

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.
