CORPUS CHRISTI-- If you plan to attend Beach Fest at Cole Park tonight, you may want to find new plans.
The big music festival, that was scheduled to last all weekend, abruptly ended this afternoon. Police say off duty officers providing security for the event were not paid, so they all left. Shortly after that the beer tent folded up and left too.
The organizers tried to shut the event down on their own, but had to call police for help.
We couldn't reach the organizer for comment, so it is unknown if Beach Fest will resume tomorrow.
