The Alive at Five concert series is a staple summer event in Stamford, drawing thousands downtown every Thursday. But this year’s crowd hasn’t been so lively.
The Stamford Downtown Special Services District has been hosting the yearly event for over a decade. This year, organizers decided to take extra precautions. This included extra I.D. checks and requiring younger patrons to sign consent forms.
Patrons at Thursday’s final concert weighed in on the changes. While the security didn’t bother this week’s attendees, they did have some input on other things.
Sandy Goldstein, president of the Stamford Downtown Special Services District, says suggestions won’t go unheard.
