Should the beach season be extended?

I’ve blogged about this in the past.  I feel like I’ve blogged about so many of these issues for so long that I’m really getting bored of myself.

Ok, here I go. The beach was crowded this past weekend. Lots of people were enjoying the water, but the beach was officially closed after Labor Day. That means no lifeguards were on duty. Should the City extend our beach season? Perhaps they should at least make it weekends only while the weather is still warm? The following photo was taken on Saturday. At 4pm, the beach was still crowded.  Discuss.
