DIY Street Party Not Supported by City of Victoria

An unpermitted dance party may occur in downtown Victoria tonight. We do not know how many people will attend. 

It's important residents know that the City does not support the DIY Victoria Street Party planned for tonight. Although police and city event staff have tried to reach and work with the organizer, they've been unresponsive to our many requests. 

We have concerns about a lack of security, and lack of washrooms for people to attend safely and potential impacts to small businesses in the area.  

There is a student production of Mary Poppins opening tonight at the McPherson theatre that the community is very much looking forward to. We are hopeful it will not be impacted.
