Big crowds expected at Flint's Back to the Bricks this week (but teens face curfew)
Starting tomorrow, the city of Flint will be welcoming more than a half million car enthusiasts to the city’s annual downtown showcase of classic cars. But the city won’t be as welcoming to unaccompanied teenagers.
The city today announced a 6pm teen curfew downtown during “Back to the Bricks”.
Captain Collin Birnie is with the Flint Police Department. He says the curfew is in response to problems with unruly teens from past years.
“They’re teenagers. They’re sometimes disruptive at family events. We want to curtail that,” says Birnie. “We want kids to come. We want them to be properly supervised by guardians or parents.”
Organizers say “Back to the Bricks” generates tens of millions of dollars for Flint’s economy during its five day run.
