promise cherry beach

Weekly summer party at Cherry Beach back in business

After a short interruption, Promise Cherry Beach Sundays will finally return on July 19. Promise lost its special events permit on June 21 when police and paramedics responded to a call at the weekly party and noticed a larger-than-expected number of attendees as well as other safety issues.

Throughout Promise's 14-year history, event organizers Irving Shaw and David Macleod say they've never dealt with a medical emergency. However, after speaking with members of the Toronto Police Service and Toronto Paramedic Services, Shaw and Macleod will implement measures to make Promise even safer for all partygoers.

Inside Toronto reports the two also met with various municipal officials including Ward 30 councillor Paula Fletcher and representatives from the 51 Division Community Response Unit, Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation and the city's Permit Office.

These meetings proved successful. Irving and Shaw now have a green light to continue celebrating electronic music at Cherry Beach.
