If any of you are still thinking about going down to Cherry Beach, the event has been cancelled today, and i suspect for the rest of the year.
This should be a bit of a lesson for those of us in our "scene"... when organizers say, please no booze, no drugs may want to respect that. Must be hard for them to make their case to the city and cops when 905 bro-dudes and their girlfriends are overdosing on a Sunday afternoon...SMH.
I'm not sure it's ever going to be realistic to expect an event like the Cherry Beach parties to be booze- and drug-free.
Also, there are plenty of meatheads and over-indulgers in the 416 to meet any party's quota. Blaming every party-related ill from traffic to drugs to fights on "905ers" is misguided and silly.
I haven't been in years though due to the current sketch factor, the fencing, the security guards, the thugs, the cover charge, etc. The vibe certainly changed a number of years ago for me and for many of my friends.
