Little to no issues for Merritt RCMP at Bass Coast Festival.

Other than having to escort out a couple people who attempted to sneak in, Merritt RCMP Sgt Norm Fleming says once again organizers were able to keep a lid on things at the electronic music and arts festival.

"It's extremely well organized, and efficiently run. I must give them props, they do a fantastic job of putting the thing together. So, the number of problems we had on site were pretty much nil."

Despite a record 5,500 people attending this past weekend, Fleming says there was no incidents of note outside the festival grounds either.
