JERSEY CITY – An ordinance change voted on by the City Council earlier this year brought about some confusion and anger when police shut down the West Indian and Caribbean festival an hour early on Saturday. While this was the 19th year the festival has taken place on the waterfront near Exchange Place, the City Council changed the rule for when music and waterfront events had to end, trying to accommodate residents who live in the area. Although the permit was until 8 p.m. the ordinance requires music to stop an hour before the permitted ending time. See pictures from the festival in the Aug. 3 issue of the Jersey City Reporter.
