Heightened Security Expected At Eastern Shore Festival

Salisbury is preparing for its 30th annual town festival, a historically fun-filled family-friendly celebration with games, rides and arts and crafts. This year will include something else: a stronger police presence than ever before.

Last weekend, Salisbury police officials say they were forced to unload a large amount of pepper spray on a crowd of more than 1,500 students at a party after a big lacrosse tournament called the War on the Shore. Police say the rowdy college-aged crowd threw beer cans at them.

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan has instilled a zero tolerance policy for both alcohol and noise this weekend for the Salisbury festival and other events around the town, as the relationship between the university students, the cops, and the town residents has become strained for the first time in several years.
