Although the weekend festivities have been somewhat contentious with a few alcohol-induced incidents over the years requiring police intervention, mostly these occurrences are minimal. Most feel that there is nothing better than beachside drinks and jeeps! Yet law enforcement made it known they were present to ensure everyone remained in check – ultimately doing their job. As one attendee told me: “It looks crazy from the outside, most nobody really wants trouble. They are just here for the beach, the Jeeps, the people, and the vibe. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
