Volunteers turned away more than four dozen people
from the river during Oktoberfest weekend.
Operation River Watch says they helped keep 54 people
away from Riverside Park after hours while the Fest
was going on.
That's down from nearly 100 people last year.
Not everyone the group turned away was drinking .
but they were in the park after hours.
Operative River Watch will continue to have volunteers
patrol the park at night .
until the end of the school year.
