Fredonia Police reported a total of 273 incidents from May 5th to May 7th for various types of incidents:
In 2015, SUNY Fredonia canceled a popular end-of-school-year party called "Fred Fest." The college worried that Fred Fest was promoting a binge-drinking culture that also resulted in a large number of complaints from Fredonia residents.
But Fred Fest refuses to die.
Thousands of students, along with outside friends, crowd Village of Fredonia streets for the several-day festival.
Last year, police stepped up enforcement of the unofficial Fred Fest and 67 people were arrested - most were not SUNY Fredonia students but came from outside the area.
