So I got to experience something unusual tonight at BGW. I was over by Apollo crossing the Festa Bridge just as the fireworks were ending. Once I got to the other side, there was a group of about 5 TMs redirecting all of use back into Festa to exit the park through the FoF/Apollo service roads. They did have the gate open by Pompeii if we did want to reenter the park. I asked several TMs as to the reason why they were forcing us this way, and was told it was a crowd control measure due to the fact that the San Marco bridge is so small. Pompeii’s area was still accessible from the Scotland side. There were about a total of 12 TMs in total directing traffic and when I went back by Pompeii at around 9:55, the bridge was reopened. There was a sign and some generator powered lights setup which makes me think that this was planned. Does anyone one else have any other info about why and what was going on? I did attach some rather bad photos of the whole thing as well.

I seen them do this on busy nights before it does seem to help with clearing people out but has always seemed rushed and disorganized to me.

Yeah, they have done this for years. I remember first seeing it during Illuminights back in 2010.
