"The consumption [lit. "enjoyment"] of alcohol in this area is PROHIBITED 30 August 2013 3pm to midnight."
Police have marked off a “no alcohol” zone around the Ilo(saari/island) area in Joensuu for the Joen Yö festival today. This is, according to the media, a big deal since it’s never happened before. Apparently they anticipate more people showing up there than the venues there have an alcohol licence for, and that disorderly/underage drinkers have been very problematic in previous years, so they decided to make it a dry area instead rather than trying to control everybody who shows up. The police would also like to remind you not to trash the “no alcohol zone” signs because it’s YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
