Port Colborne's Nickel Beach will play host to a handful of upcoming community events involving bonfires.
Council provided their approval of this event though made a few rule changes in the process. These include the prohibiting of both alcohol and cannabis. Because beaches are one of the few places not under a public smoking ban, smoking is permitted. This means cannabis is also permitted wherever cigarettes are.
Council made the effort to declare the event as a municipal festival, allowing them to place a temporary smoking ban on the area.
