St. Patrick’s Day: Safety Tips

Posted by:

St. Patrick's Day celebration_1695_20081103We want to wish you all a very safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day!  Festivities will be running through the weekend here in Springfield, MO due to the 30th annual Pub Crawl being this Saturday, March 20th.

 

For the safety of all residents Springfield Law Enforcement will have added patrol on the streets this week & weekend.

 

 

Helpful information:

 

If you are under 21, under no circumstances should you be drinking any type of alcohol. You will risk getting slammed with an MIP (minor in possession) or an MIC (minor in consumption) & maybe more.  Being fine for drinking as a minor could cost you hundreds of dollars in fines, require you to attend alcohol classes and even put you in jail.  So, please remember: It is not worth it!
