Bay Days is done and over with. Used to be great, but now, at night, it's thug land. Fights everywhere, violence. Even if the hurricane / storm wasn't going to wipe out the vendors this weekend, the city has lost control of the animals and they are roaming free to prey on people.

I agree, I used to go to Bay Days but I don't go anymore. This guy stole a lady's purse and I didn't see this happening. I was just standing minding my own business listening to a band on stage and all of a sudden someone from behind me is running like Hell and pushes me to the ground so hard that I lost my breath for a second. It was the guy that stole the lady's purse and he was being chased. After that I said okay this place is getting out of contro, too many people. I could see before this happened that the clientele of people coming to this event was changing. I just don't want no part of it no more.
