MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - A Fourth of July tradition that's been around for decades is canceled this year because police fear it draws gangs.
Police urged the City of Richfield to cancel its annual Fourth of July Carnival at Veterans Park.
"I was kind of bummed," said resident Maria Casillas, "because every year we come out to the carnival."
Casillas thinks it's ridiculous for the gangs to ruin the carnival for her, her two children and other families.
Lt. Mike Flaherty of Richfield Police says a number of gangs from north Minneapolis came to the Richfield Carnival last year and police confiscated three guns.
