The post was amended from a previous post that mentioned “an increase in pop-up events in parking lots.”

Last year around Memorial Day weekend, a large fight at a convenience store on Thomas Drive and Front Beach Road stemming from a parking lot pop-up event made headlines and caused the Panama City Beach Police Department to ramp up patrol efforts, even bringing in agencies from other municipalities.

Residents have said on the public social media post for the meeting that they are seeing pop-up parking lot events this year as well.
