Give kids alcohol and you can be sure something bad is going to happen. It doesn't surprise me at all. I'm sure the same kinda crap happened 30 years.

I agree. I remember when Summerfest began - most people didn't even go, just a few. As the crowds became bigger, more problems. If we cancelled an event with the fear that something bad would happen, then we would happy? I think not.
