Parkway crowds generally well-behaved during holiday weekend

The Labor Day weekend was busy on the American River Parkway, but with the exception of visitors who sought to circumvent the holiday alcohol ban, crowds along the parkway were generally well-behaved, said John Havicon, ranger supervisor with Sacramento County Regional Parks.

“A lot of alcohol was poured out,” Havicon said.

He said 20 tickets were issued to people for violating the alcohol ban.

Havicon said rangers this year have found more people trying to bring in hard liquor, often in water bottles, for mixed drinks.
