A small group of people are vowing to “save the party” by reminding partiers in the city’s major nightlife hotspots about being responsible.
The city-managed group called Responsible Hospitality Edmonton said recent violence, vandalism and disruptive acts done by a few bad apples are giving those who party on Whyte Avenue and Jasper Avenue a bad reputation.
“For the most part, both are safe places now and what we want to do is remind and enhance people’s choices about their behaviours,” said Cindy Davies with Responsible Hospitality Edmonton.
The group will be on Whyte Avenue Friday night and Jasper Avenue Saturday night handing out T-shirts, buttons, stickers and hot chocolate to remind people about the “growing threat to Edmonton’s parties,” said Davies.
