NBC10: Return of BeachGlow concert draws concerns


Last year's inaugural BeachGlow Music Festival in Wildwood drew over 7,000 people and raised $40,000 for the American Red Cross.

On the flip side, the event drew criticism from several local businesses, including the Morey Organization, because of rowdy behavior and profane language used by performers within earshot of the Boardwalk and amusement piers.

With city officials in the process of finalizing a three-year contract to bring BeachGlow back through 2017, Philadelphia's NBC10 reports on community concerns surrounding the festival.

Included are comments from Steve Tecco, President of the Greater Wildwood Hotel/Motel Association, and Mayor Ernie Troiano (who defended the event, but states that the city will shut it down if profanity is used).

* For the record, BeachGlow touts a "zero tolerance policy" for profanity, publicly stating that performers are warned against using vulgar language and actions on stage.
