A caller to Beach Metro Community News on Friday afternoon expressed concern about the amount of space in Woodbine Park being taken up by the festival and the proximity of one of the stages to a pond that has numerous birds and other wildlife in it.
In a statement to Beach Metro Community News sent on Friday afternoon, the City of Toronto said:
“This is an approved commercial special event. Large events, such as this one, are required to follow all safety, event and duration conditions of their permit. Multiple City divisions, including bylaw and parks staff, work with festivals like these to ensure they are run safely for attendees and the surrounding community. Music at this event is expected to conclude at 10 p.m., which is not a contravention of noise level requirements which come in effect daily at 11 p.m.”
