It's Memorial Day weekend, a holiday many consider to be the unofficial start of summer. Kids and adults alike have time off and most want to spend it doing something fun.
For many people, it means spending time at the beach. Rochester Police say they're expecting a lot of people to head up to Charlotte over the course of the weekend. Especially with the Roc City Ribfest in town.
It's another big festival coming to our area and it's just on the heels of the Lilac Festival. Last Saturday, Rochester Police tell us they arrested twenty people for disorderly conduct after multiple fights broke out near the Lilac Festival site. Police tell us most of those arrested were teenagers, but with another big festival happening and the fact that it's another holiday weekend, we wanted to know what exactly police are doing to keep you and your family safe.
