Police called to carnival in Weymouth after ‘crowd control issues’

WEYMOUTH, Mass — Police were called to Weymouth High School Friday night after carnival festivities got out of hand.

Fiesta Shows, the company producing the Weymouth Spring Carnival, told Boston 25 News there was no shooting on school grounds but police were called due to “crowd control issues.”

“For generations, we have prided ourselves in creating a family-friendly environment and the safety of our guests is our top priority. We maintain a large police and fire presence on-site as part of our normal security procedures to ensure that our patrons are safe at all times. We are pleased that none of our guests or employees were injured in this incident.

The carnival was cancelled for the rest of the weekend.
