NEW RULE: Anyone under the age of 18 is required to wear a wristband or be denied entrance to the concerts.
The Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority will be distributing wristbands to area high schools for kids who want to attend the concert series at the Liberty Park Amphitheater without an adult or guardian.
To receive a wristband, which is free, students must sign a pledge to behave.
The wristband and pledge were part of a compromise worked out several months ago between the authority and area teens amending an authority policy that required anyone younger than 18 to attend with a parent or guardian.
Authority members said they needed to set the policy because unruly crowds of youths were ruining the family atmosphere.
(Honestly, I dont know why the Port Authority just didn't enforce the rules in the first place. I mean, are they lazy or what! Kick these kids into submission!)
So--who's going, other than my friends and I?
