Bonfires on the beach – a topic which has been discussed on the blog before. This message was sent in by a reader who wishes to remain anonymous :
“Dear Seabythecity, One of my neighbors was wondering about the yearly bonfire [LINK] that happens on Franklin. Turns out they changed the date this year to do it on a Thursday, instead of a sunday. We trolled the Long Beach website and still cannot find a permit that allows any open flames on the beach. How is this still happening? Either bonfires are allowed, or they are not. Why are the rules in this town enforced selectively? It’s not that I don’t want to see others enjoying this kind of event, it’s mostly that I would love to do this with my “community”.
