Public Safety: Safety Is A Priority At Spring Fling

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Preparations for Spring Fling in Spartanburg will get underway early Friday morning when Public Safety will begin closing streets around 3:00 a.m. for the Spring Fling weekend.  Spring Fling will officially start on Friday, May 3, 2013, at 4:00 p.m. with the annual bicycle race.  

The Spartanburg Public Safety Department says all streets in the downtown area will be closed by 4:00 p.m.  The road closures may present small delays for drivers.   

For this year's event Spartanburg Public Safety Department will add additional officers to the inside and outside festival area with increased surveillance activities. Law enforcement teams will have access to additional cameras and organizers have recruited more volunteers and expanded vendor identification checks.     

The Spartanburg Public Safety Department's Command Post will also be onsite during the entire weekend along with the Spartanburg County Unified Command Center. 

Officials add there are important reminders for those attending.   Spring Fling is a smoke free event and no pets are allowed inside the event footprint.  Public Safety also asks everyone to refrain from bringing large bags and book bags to the festival.  Officers also want to remind visitors to remove valuables from their vehicles.  

Spring Fling runs Friday, May 3 through Sunday, May 5.
