VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - More than 10,000 people have signed a petition trying to cancel a Virginia Beach festival set for next year. But city officials say they have no control over it.
The Virginian-Pilot reported Monday that College Beach Weekend brought large crowds and traffic backups. A shooting also left four people with non-life threatening injuries.
Councilman Jim Wood said the mostly social-media-driven event is not officially organized. He added, "how do you tell people they can't visit the beach?"
