“It’s been tough. We’ve gotten so much support from the community,” Stiver said. “This community has really demonstrated that it has risen to this and wrapped their arms around our police department, our fire department, and really shown their appreciation for everything we’re all doing out here.”
Stiver says even though crowds of hundreds to thousand of people come out , they have few problems.
“We can see crowds of several hundred to several thousands on weekend nights,” she said. “For the most part, we have very few problems.”

It’s difficult to predict exactly how many people come out, but crews are prepared to keep the public safe.
“We expect to see more people than maybe we normally see but they’re all coming for a lot of different reasons and we’re gonna be here to make them feel safe,” Stiver said. “We’re gonna be prepared for a lot more this weekend.”
