This weekend’s Rossland Winter Carnival is all about fun, but the police are reminding party-goers that the fun only goes so far.
The Trail and Greater District RCMP say officers will be out and about at the 2019 Rossland Winter Carnival, Jan. 24-27.
“The RCMP received a complaint about visible, open alcohol last year from the Liquor Control and Licence Board Liquor Inspector,” a news release from the police Mondya says.
“You may see the RCMP conducting vehicle and foot patrols downtown Rossland and at the variety of events scheduled for the weekend.”
Police will be looking for members of the public openly carrying and drinking alcohol outside of the designated areas and off private property. You may have your alcohol seized and face a violation ticket if you are spotted by a police officer openly carrying and drinking alcohol in public and in non-designated areas.
The Mounties say they want to ensure that all festival attendees have a safe and enjoyable time and ask the public for their cooperation by ensuring they have a safe ride home.
