Massive ‘Beach Party’ in Pt. Pleasant Beach Called Off
The rumored "beach party" being planned on social media for Friday in Pt. Pleasant Beach has been canceled, according to police.
This meet-up was to be very similar to the one that brought thousands out to Seaside Heights a couple of weeks ago.
When Pt. Pleasant Beach Police caught word of "Summer Beach Meet Up" on Facebook, they quickly stepped in and contacted the party's organizer. They were hyping an all-day party from noon-9.
Police said on their Facebook page:
"Our agency has made contact with the organizers of the Summer Beach Party that had been advertised through Social Media for June 29th and they have agreed to cancel the event. However, due to the nature of social media and the exposure that this event has already generated, this agency will be going forward with our planned security measures to ensure the safety and security of all residents and visitors this holiday weekend. The public should still expect to see an enhanced law enforcement presence in Point Pleasant Beach."
