SCITUATE (CBS) — Anyone pondering a party on Humarock Beach on the 3rd will have to think twice. The Town of Scituate will close Humarock Beach a little early on Monday.
Police say the town will close the beach at 4:30 p.m. to cut down on underage drinking and excessive partying during the 4th of July holiday.
Police Chief Michael Stewart says most of the beachgoers at Humarock are between 14 to 24-years-old, adding that about a dozen people are put in the hospital every year because of underage drinking.
The town says the beach will reopen at sunrise on the 4th.
